Traditional Japanese Tea Gathering: Doll Festival Tea

Sat, March 17, 2018, 1:00 PM to 2:15 PM

Please note: Our March 17 teas have been canceled due to illness, and all other Japanese Teas this season are sold out. We hope you will join us next season.

Join us for a moment of respite in the Duke Gardens teahouse, where you will experience the warmth of a traditional Japanese tea gathering. Enjoy the aesthetics, poetry and serenity of this rich tradition over an enticing bowl of whisked green tea and a Japanese confection. Daytime teas are open for children age 6 and older, with an accompanying adult, at the family rate. 

Instructor: Chizuko Sueyoshi with members of the Japanese Tea Practitioners of Durham.

Location: Guests will meet at the Doris Duke Center to be escorted on a 10-minute walk to the teahouse.
