The Art of Tea |
Chado or Chanoyu (jap.)

Tea, to be more exact: tea as it is used and cultivated in Japanese culture, may offer doors to a profound and insightful way of living.
'Teaism' in that sense is a way of life.

The Japanese tea ceremony, also called “the Way of Tea”, is a multifarious art which centres on the preparation and presentation of the powdered green tea known as matcha.

Embedded in Zen philosophy and aesthetics 'teaism' provides acces to an understanding based on practice and experience.
In an every day activity and invitation, simplicity, the comprehension that 'nothing lasts, nothing is finished, nothing is perfect', and the harmonious interplay of man and nature may be expressed.

Gatherings and workshops are being held in collaboration with
