Tea Ceremony with Souheki Mori

Tea Ceremony with Souheki Mori

The tea ceremony in Japan is something we’ve been curious about for a long time, so I was intrigued by this short film this morning as I browsed the web first thing enjoying my very own cup of tea. The ideals of this ceremony seem to run against the culture of the cities found in the West, so I was surprised to see Souheki Mori practicing in Manhattan, New York.
