John’s tearoom is full of wabi-sabi and of intimate delight. Authentic but unique, featuring an upstairs sitting area and exposed Asian style rafters, a feeling of endless inner courtyards. Everything is crisp but not at all pretentious, with a lovely spaciousness that allows the expansion of the mind. But beyond these attributes, the owner has a profound appreciation of tea, the warmth of which he shares most generously with others, so that they leave with an inspiring and happy glow. I only wish I lived closer!

Profile

Bio

Tea combines the all sensual, earthly, sacred, social, philosophical, and artistic elements of this world. It is where culture meets nature gently, as in an offering to dance. It is part ritual, part impossible moment—“one meeting, one chance.”

I am a chaiwala because the tea experience is a way of sharing in a great reverence—for nature, for pleasure, for the present moment, for each other— a reverence that the busy world often forgets.
