Ok, so now is the time for you to experience everything that Seattle has to offer in the summer. And, one of those things is equal parts beautiful and educational. That’s right, we’re talking about the tea ceremonies at the Seattle Japanese Garden.
First off, the garden itself is absolutely stunning. A full-fledged, 3.5-acre space filled with walking paths and flora. Enjoy a leisurely stroll through it, making sure to take in the tranquility of the space.
When a garden survives for over 5 decades (it opened in 1960), you know that there’s something special going on. And while we can easily say that the garden does more than prove that, there’s another draw here.

Chanoya, aka a tea ceremony, is an opportunity to look into chado, or the ‘way of tea’. Why would you want to learn the way of tea? Well, we’re sure you can find a reason.
As for us, we see it as a ritual that calms one a little bit. Maybe even a gateway to meditation. Don’t get too hung up on form- just appreciate your surroundings and sip on a little tea.
It is just an introduction, after all. You’re not going to be tested after the ceremony is over, thankfully.
