Wabisabi Uji Tea At The Heart Of Kyoto

Wabisabi Uji Tea At The Heart Of Kyoto

It is said that the origin of Japanese green tea is Uji tea.  In Uji, the production method of senchawas born in 1738 and the production method of gyokuro was also born 100 years later.

Sadō, which also was compiled in Uji, has deep and unique thoughts.  Some people who may have heard aboutsadō or Japanese tea ceremony might know that it has some fixed etiquettes to serve and drink.  But the essence of sadō is not the etiquettes.  Tea is not simply a beverage.

It always comes along with the spirit of omotenashi, which means Japanese hospitality.  The host expresses his appreciation to this one time one meeting relationship with the guests by serving tea with courtesy and reverence.

Not only expressing the sadō mind, a host must have wide variety of knowledge and sensitiveness in religion, philosophy, tea serving tools, and some artworks for decorating the tea room to embody the whole art of sadō.

Japanese Landscape Arts Forming Soil Circles

Wabi-sabi is a word created from the process of enjoying this art. Japanese people tend to love things that are sober and subdued which is not common in this world.

It does not mean that gorgeous things are not adored, but we can certainly say that sadō shows their aspect of deep love for subdued things precisely.  Wabi-sabi can shortly be defined as rusticity.  But it is not just rustic.

It is a spirit of admiring something perfectly simple without any embellishments.  It is a heart of loving nature, wishing things to exist in its natural ways.  It is a behavior to thank the presence of ourselves and feel the time flow by all senses.

Wabi-sabi is a word to describe pure beauty which appears after shedding ostentation.  Every Japanese people inheres the spirit of wabi-sabi, which is the pride of Japanese Minimalism.  It is not a sense to know, but a sense to feel and remember.

We would like you to know and become familiar with this unique Japanese spirit and art to enjoy tea more comfortably.  It is a pleasure to share our conservancy with you.
