The way of tea (cha-no-yu) is another expression used to describe Japanese tea ceremonies - developed by tea master Sen no Rikyū (1522-1591 CE) in the 14th century CE. Alongside the ritual of ceremony, tea consumption is enjoyed as part of every day life in Japan, from bright green matcha through to earthy, roasted hōjicha.
