Sado (tea ceremony) is a ceremonial way of preparing and drinking tea, which usually uses matcha, a green tea powder. The custom has been strongly influenced by Zen Buddhism. The essence of the Japanese tea ceremony is reflected in its 4 main principles: harmony (with other people and with nature), respect (of others), purity (of the mind and the senses) and tranquility (peace of mind and appreciation of nature's abundance).
