Chadō 茶道, the “tea way”, with its heart, the tea ceremony, is one of the geidō 芸道 (“art ways”) of Japanese culture. Since the 15th century, their Chinese models have been transformed in several schools in Japan until they received a canonical form, coined by the famous tea master Sen no Rikyū (1522-1591), which is still practiced today.
