伝統茶懐石と楽しむ本格茶事体験 先日、抹茶道の茶事体験にお客様をお迎えしました。皆さま、博識、且つユーモア溢れる素敵な方々で、大変充実した茶会となりました。茶会の醍醐味、お茶・道具・食事×季節を通して皆で語らいあう時間がここにありました。お茶の前の「茶懐石」では、シェフの解説と共に、季節に合わせた汁「三州味噌 焼豆腐 辛子」、メインの煮物椀「海老と銀杏の真蒸」などを愉しんでいただきました。お客様から何度も「本当に美味しい」という嬉しいお言葉もいただきました。お食事の後には、亭主のお点前と共に、最高の一服(お抹茶)を召し上がっていただきました。 プランの詳細はこちら:  http://bit.ly/chakaiseki-and-tea 体験風景 プランの詳細はこちら:  http://bit.ly/chakaiseki-and-tea
