We believe tea has the power to unite and heal!

"...the art of concealing beauty that you may discover it, ..it is the noble secret of laughing at yourself, calmly yet thoroughly, and is thus humour itself,--the smile of philosophy." - The Book of Tea

Teaism is:
A collection of Asian-inspired teahouses that infuse the cultures of tea and the ideals of teaism with the informality and casualness of America;
A collection of critically acclaimed restaurants that produce simple foods from the cuisines of tea, Bento boxes from Japan, curries from Thailand, and tandoor breads from India;
A collection of tea shops with an abundance of tea accessories and exhibitions of work by local potters and artists;
& more.

Why do we do what we do?
A desire to share our discovery of the richness and complexity of the tea leaf;
A response to the corruption of tea, the style above substance and the use of tea bags in American offerings; &
An alternative to the obfuscation, over-formalizaiton, and xenophobia of traditional Asian and English tea houses.
