I first became interested in tea through the world of BDSM and my love of high protocol. I was fascinated by the elaborate etiquette of Chanoyu and the humility of Gongfucha.
Tea now means so many things to me, it is so deep and it is revealing new meaning to me all the time.
Tea is a mindfulness practice, and a doorway through which to explore different philosophies, cultures, and historical times. Tea is hospitality and a way of communion. Tea is an art, a ritual, and a tradition. Tea is a complement to the foods I eat (preferably vegan desserts) and is something I enjoy collecting and curating.
