1 pm Brunch & Tea Ceremony at Umami Café
Umami Café is an opportunity for us to slow down and reflect with all senses.
For centuries, green tea has been treasured throughout Asia for its healthful, restorative qualities. In Japan, Zen priests drank green tea to keep themselves awake through long hours of meditation.
In the 16th century a man named Sen no Rikyu, influenced by the study of Zen, envisioned a path to enlightenment through the simple act of sharing a bowl of tea among friends in the pursuit of peace and harmony—a practice he called wabi-cha. For Rikyu, making tea while mindfully engaging all the senses was to have a complete Zen experience. We will share a moment of quiet joy and experience the spirit of Japanese culture through a bowl of tea.
3:30 pm Explore the Lan Su Chinese Garden & WonderlanD
Lan Su Chinese Garden is one of Portland's greatest treasures. Built by Chinese artisans from their sister city Suzhou, it's the most authentic Chinese garden outside of China.
