Tyas Sōsen

Japanese Tea Master

The Tea Crane Founder

Nihoncha Instructor

Tea Ceremony Teacher

Lecturer

Tyas Sōsen’s unflagging efforts to spread better awareness of Tea “ceremony” is integral to his vision of the importance of (particularly Japanese) tea, as a healthy beverage contributive to social bonding, and an aid to spiritual refreshment. The paradoxical combination – of unbroken meditation with considerate alertness to the needs, comfort and delight of others – characterizing this rite being something of which he feels contemporary society to be in sore need, through constant workshops and presentations he strives to make the Way of Tea accessible to as many as possible – not as a performance, but, ultimately, an approach to what it is to be alive.
