“Meanwhile, let us have a sip of tea. The afternoon glow is brightening the bamboos, the fountains are bubbling with delight, the soughing of the pines is heard in our kettle. Let us dream of evanescence and linger in the beautiful foolishness of things.” – Kakuzō Okakura, The Book of Tea
Tea is a work of art, to be enjoyed every day with a small ritual of abstraction from chaos, to regain possession of one's time even in daily agitation.
And just as there are beautiful and ugly works of art, tea also finds its splendor in the beauty of the tools with which it is prepared and tasted; an invitation to beauty that you can find in this all-Japanese selection of cups and teapots.
