The Japanese tea ceremony is practiced and enjoyed by the millions of people not only in Japan but throughout the world.  The Way of Tea fosters harmony in humanity, promotes harmony with nature, disciplines the mind, quiets the heart, and attains the purity of enlightenment.  We believe the Art of Tea promotes peace in one’s mind and a spirit of humility.
