Year 9 Japanese Cultural Experience
This week the Year 9 Japanese classes were treated to a demonstration of さどう(sadou) Japanese Tea Ceremony by our Japanese assistant Ayana sensei.
Students were able to taste the special green tea and also a Japanese sweet. Eating the sweet balances out the drinking of the bitter green tea. They watched the special way the tea was made and learnt the correct etiquette in drinking from the cup. Some students tried whisking the tea to create the frothy bubbles and found it to be quite a challenge. How lucky we are that Ayana has been able to demonstrate this cultural tradition.
