With the help of my great teachers, friends and family, I hope to take part in introducing the beautiful world of “Chado” (Way of Tea) to the people of the Middle East, first in Jordan, and now moving to Egypt.

This site will present various subjects related to Chado, and the activities of Chanoyu Arabia group in Jordan.

You can join our facebook group for frequent updates and direct communication, or simply send an e-mail to ahmad@saqf.com.

    • Gupse-san, this was in Kyoto, but the memories and scent of it are engraved in my head.
      That day was the highlight of the three year stay in Japan.

    Inspiring; I have been reading about the Japanese tea ceremony and got impressed, now am looking forward for the first experience.
    Now I’m trying to learn more about the tea rituals in the Middle East countries.
    Thanks for a wonderful blog, and best of luck with your quest.

  9. Ahmed-San , my dear good friend.
    Last time we saw each other was 1991, thats 20 years ago.
    Even though i never heard from you until (7/8/2011) … im not a bit surprised of your passion, career,art, education ,website and way of life mashallah.
    Because, i knew you as a passionate, peaceful teen with tons of sophistication , intelligence, love and full of positive potential.
    All the best, my friend.

    • Dear Adel-san 🙂
      Thank you so much for stopping by, and for reconnecting after 20 years!
      Your words are very humbling, and I must say, our friendship was very special. It would be great to meet again, and catch up on the 20 years, over a nice bowl of Japanese Tea.
      See you in Egypt inshaAllah.
      All the best,

  10. Congratulations on the blog and for the beautiful pictures.
    It really breathes a sense of wabi and sabi.
    Ease and composure are very clear.
    Follow his blog, it will be like taking a cup of tea together.
    Greetings from Rome

    • Dear Enzo,
      Thank you very much for your thoughtful comment. I am happy you enjoyed the blog, and glad the feeling of wabi-sabi was present.
      I will look forward to sharing a real bowl of tea with you. I loved your blog as well, I practised Kyudo while I was in Japan. I am sorry I don’t understand Italian, but do you practice Kyudo in Italy?
      I am currently living in Cairo, so if you ever visit Egypt, make sure to pass by for some tea. 🙂
      All the best,

      2011/11/10 at 3:10 PM

  11. dear Ahmad
    In Italy, kyudo is practiced for several years, I have the pleasure of practicing according to the school Heki Insai Ha, always with the spirit to learn and be comfortable with others.
    Here in Rome, I had the pleasure to know the tea ceremony at the Urasenke Center of Teacher Michiko Nojiri, as invited, and since then has always been in my heart that sense of peace.
    The words of the Master Sen no Rikyu, “Wa Kei Jaku You” are a part of me, comparing them with everyday life.
    I’ve been to Cairo several years ago, if you’ll try again in Egypt to take a good tea with you.
