Yale Tea Exhibit

It was standing room only at the kickoff of this celebration of Japanese "Teaism". This is the cult of simplicity. Exquisite and expensive items that are austere. So if you love Japanese tea ceremony that uses matcha, this will very enjoyable. Beautiful pieces that are complimented lovely ceramic objects and multi-layered fabrics. The exhibit is until April 26th in New Haven, CT.

Now two minor comments: there is little focus on tea, rather all the stuff that goes with it; and this exhibit concentrates on the matcha ceremony. There is no mention of the sencha tea ceremony that started in reaction to this ceremony.
