Our Story

Tea-Whisk Inc is established to introduce the beauty of Japanese Tea Ceremony to all over the world through New York.

 

At first, you may feel that you do not know exactly what the tea ceremony is because it includes various fields of art, such as calligraphy, flowers, incense, ceramics, lacquer ware, iron work, wood work, architecture, gardening, kimono, Japanese kaiseki meals and so on. In the course of time, you will discover new things and grow day by day. It is like a process of creating a sculpture as if you would cut down the excessive and find out the heart of the tea ceremony.

 

Something invisible and precious, sensing further spiritual growth of yourself through Japanese Tea Ceremony.

 

We would love to share a bowl of tea with you in New York City.

Our Purpose

We introduce the beauty of the tea ceremony to the people around the world.

世界中の人々に、茶道の美しさを紹介します。

 

We invite you to a space where people can relax completely and become themselves, being separated from busy daily life.

忙しい日常から離れて、人々が心地よさを感じ、自分自身になれる空間を提供します。


Our Philosophy

We regard tea gathering as a once-in-a-lifetime occurrence and hold tea ceremonies for everyone to appreciate the moment we spend together.

茶会を一生に一度の出逢いと捉え、その瞬間を味わえる茶会を開きます。

 

We break the wall of the tea ceremony that people generally feel as much as possible and pursue high standard of the beauty.

一般的に感じられる茶道の敷居の高さを可能な限り低くしつつも、高水準の美を追究します。

 

We make every effort to arrange accessible tea utensils with wide variety of rustic styles.

入手が容易で、かつ野趣に富んだ道具を取り合わせることに心を砕きます。

 

We create a space that is pure and equal to everybody filled with love and value the importance of communication.

清浄で平等、人とのコミュニケーションを重視し、愛が込められた空間を創造します。
