What’s it all About?
We’re working with Buddha Maitreya of Pureland Japanese Garden in Newark to bring this truly unique experience to Lincoln. Maitreya will be performing a traditional tea ceremony and teaching the history and traditions behind the ceremony. Afterward, he will perform a short haiku reading and spectators will be invited to try some of the traditional antioxidant-rich Matcha tea.
