The UW Chanoyu Club holds their first practice at "Shosei-an" at the Seattle Japanese Garden

The University of Washington Chanoyu Club holds regular tea ceremony practice on Friday evenings. Three times a month they conduct practice using classrooms on campus, and once a month practice is held at a private tea room. This was the first time since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic two years ago that the club has been able to use the "Shosei-an" tea room at the Seattle Japanese Garden.

After changing into their kimono and entering nervously into theta room though the roji the students put everything they have learned in the classroom to use inside the tea room. Despite being in an unfamiliar environment, everyone enjoyed themselves and reveled in their accomplishments together.
