Way of Tea

The Way of Tea is a practice and art that developed in the 15th and 16th centuries in close conjunction with Zen. The Green Gulch tea house is built in the traditional Japanese style within the enclosed space of a tea garden, offering an intimate and protective setting for classes and tea gatherings.

The tea program is under the direction of Christy Bartlett Sensei, Director, Urasenke Foundation of California.

For all tea gatherings and classes, please bring a pair of clean socks to wear in the tearoom and wear comfortable clothing; long (over-the-knee) skirt or pants are appropriate.
