Tea Ceremony(다도, Da-Do) has long been recognized in East Asian countries like Korea, China and Japan,as a distinctive art of harmonization of spirit and matter.
It reflects a delicate emotion and aesthetic principle in the whole process of the Tea Ceremony – from young green tea leaves turned in to a cup of tea and delivered to visitors.
Hagajea art museum offers vivid experiences of the Oriental senses in a traditionally decorated tea room.
Enjoy a personal experience of the Tea ceremony, the Oriental spirit conveyed through elegant body movements and beautiful art pieces, while feeling the warm-heartedness from a cup of tea.
It is an opportunity to explore the Oriental spirit through eastern tea culture, a beauty of silent elegance in contrast to the glamourous tea culture of the west.
