On February 28, 1591, Rikyu committed ritual suicide by the order of Toyotomi Hideyoshi.  Tea practitioners today memorialize his passing by dedicating tea to him.  It is known as Rikyuki.

Omotesenke D*monka’i in Northern California held its Rikyuki tea event on March 15, 2015 at the “Rinwa-ken” tea room on the third floor of the Hokubei Kaikan in San Francisco Japantown.
