The way of tea

The way of tea.

Inspired by Baisao the old tea seller, Sen no Rikyu and the books Wind in the Pines, Zen Sand and White, my passion for Zen, tea and poetry deepens.

The emptiness of the tea house, the spaciousness of simplicity and silence, the delight of tea served with awareness. The Zen arts.

An old project develops in new ways.
