Visiting professor Shozo Sato hosted the event to celebrate the arrival of spring and make the traditional tea ceremony accessible to Western audiences who do not have access to traditional tea houses, said Sato. Sato, a Zen arts master, has received the highest honor in Japanese art from the emperor of Japan.
About 75 Northwestern students and community members attended the two-hour event, sponsored by the Asian and Middle Eastern Studies Program, to sample what Sato called the "espresso of green teas."
