For those who want a taste of Japanese culture (and tea), NUS Sado Club is one of the few institutions in Singapore dedicated to the art of Japanese tea. A grandmaster from the Enshu School of Tea, one of the oldest tea schools in Japan, visits the club yearly to give lessons. Hospitality is the main focus of Japanese tea culture. “In Japanese tea ceremonies, the guest is basically king,” says Sado Club’s president Luqman Hakim. A standard ceremony to prepare one bowl of tea is a 20-minute-long process with three stages: preparation of the equipment, tea-making and cleaning of utensils.
