Originating in China and transformed in Japan, the iconic Tea Culture of Chanoyu distills art, hospitality, and philosophy into an unprecedented and unrepeatable moment of serenity and beauty. Experience Chanoyu in SAM's finely crafted teahouse to discover how the medium of offering and receiving a bowl of tea provides a model for mindful living in a turbulent world.

Chanoyu demonstrations are held on the second Saturday of every month from 3–4 pm and the third Saturday of every month from 2–3 pm. There are no demonstrations in August, December, and January.

Demonstrations are hosted by Seizankai, a group of certified tea instructors representing various traditions of Chanoyu.
