Like the formal art surrounding matcha, there is a formal art surrounding sencha, which is distinguished as the way of sencha (煎茶道), or the Sencha tea ceremony. Generally it involves the high-grade gyokuro class of sencha. This ceremony, more Chinese in style, was introduced to Japan in the 17th century by Ingen, the founder of the Ōbaku school of Zen Buddhism, which, in general, is more Chinese in style than earlier schools. It remains associated with the Ōbaku school, and the head temple of Manpuku-ji hosts regular sencha tea ceremony conventions.
