Tea Ritual 

It is a ritual, a philosophy and a discipline. A tea ceremony is a way to invite guests into your home. The gesture itself, or the “offering” is a symbolic act of giving and receiving.

Tea has always been a drink to be shared with others; high tea in England and age old ceremonies in Japan. The tea ceremony is a quest for perfection. One can never perform a perfect ceremony, but one can always do it better. It is a celebration of the moment - a unique encounter between us and our guest.
