You are invited to join us in celebrating the arrival of 2017 with a traditional tea gathering. The Green Gulch tearoom with its sunken winter hearth provides an intimate atmosphere in which to appreciate the formal flow of the preparation of tea, along with conversation and good company. Koicha (matcha—thick green tea) will be served, as well as hanabira mochi, a special New Year's sweet. Instruction in basic tea etiquette will be offered.
Limited to 14 guests per seating. Please plan to wear socks in the tearoom, and bring a handkerchief to dry your hands at the outdoor water basin.
