ukiyo-e woodblock print: traditional tea ceremony in kimono by master Utagawa Toyokuni
Seasonality and the changing of the seasons are important in the tea ceremony from Japan. Traditionally the year is divided by tea practitioners into two main seasons: the sunken hearth season, constituting the colder months (traditionally November to April), and the brazier season, constituting the warmer months (traditionally May to October). For each season, there are variations in the temae performed and utensils and other equipment used.
