Furuta Oribe was a prominent tea master of the Azuchi-Momoyama and early Edo periods.

Oribe studied Zen under Shun'oku Sôen.[1]

His students in tea culture included Kobori Enshû. Oribe circulated among his students manuscript copies of his personal secrets to tea practice, a document entitled Chadô hiden ("Secret Transmissions of the Way of Tea," 1615).[2]
