Tea Ceremony

Join us for one of Japan’s most distinctive rituals and see why refinement and subtlety are by-words in Japanese culture. In classical kimono and following canons of etiquette established nearly 1,000 years ago, a master devoted to the art and spirituality of “The Way of Tea” (Chadō) will prepare and serve you a bowl of matcha, or powdered green tea, and a traditional Japanese sweet to nibble.

Performed with all the formality and reverence that time-honored custom decrees, our next tea ceremony takes place at two different hours on Saturday, March 21, from 10:00 to 11:00 am, and from 1:00 to 2:00 pm. The ceremony is not intended for children under the age of 15.

Seating for this highly popular event is limited, and advance ticket purchase is required. Tickets are $25 per person for non-members. The ticket price includes admission to all buildings and grounds at Yume and is non-refundable.

Tickets are $15 for members of Yume Gardens (please, call the Gardens at 520-303-3945 to reserve your spot).

Parking is available in the lot inside our main gate on North Alvernon Way and on East Justin Lane, one half block south of the Gardens. Please DO NOT park on East Hampton Place, immediately north of Yume.
