Chanoyu – The Way of Tea is a Japanese art form also known as Tea Ceremony in English. This web site is an attempt to make an English encyclopedia for Chanoyu. Urasenke is the largest school of Chanoyu; therefore, information about Urasenke’s tea tradition is the default for this page. Information about other schools should be marked as such.
