Japanese Tea Ceremony Lessons With a Reggae-Judoka

This may sound like a joke, but it’s not. Souchoku Umehara is a real, authentic, certified Japanese tea ceremony master who also happens to be a reggae singer. As a judoka, he began studying the art of the Japanese tea ceremony to learn about discipline and gestures, but became so intrigued that he dropped judo and became a tea ceremony master instead. Master Umehara will teach you the basics of the Japanese tea ceremony and let you to make your own cup of beautifully frothed matcha.
