About the Tea Docents

Our Mission

Our Mission is to contribute to the awareness of the various aspects of a Tea Lifestyle and Tea Culture. As a Tea Docent we aspire to become a medium through which tea is commemorated, understood as more than a beverage and enjoyed in its multifaceted art forms. Our intent is to share the life of Chado and for the spirit of Chado to enrich the world!

The seemingly simple act of serving and receiving tea with gratitude is the basis for a way of life called Chado or literally translated, The Way of Tea.

The Spirit of Chado is Wa Kei Sei Jaku or Harmony, Respect, Purity and Tranquility
