Creating spaces

Our tray or tea boat creates gravity. It is a centerpiece in a space newly arising. Our cups extend their orbits to the far reaches of the universe. Each teapot is our tool, our vehicle, and our wand to play with the time and physics of that new space. 

Arranging spaces with enriching teaware is where the magic of tea appreciation becomes clearly apparent. Each piece has it’s own character. A teapot quickly becomes a friend to journey and grow with.

Daoist Lifestyle Tea works with potters who know that each piece is alive, and finds high quality pieces that spark the imagination, to enrich tea through form and function, beauty and practicality.

Tiempo

How we use our time is an important choice. What do we prioritize, focus on, bring into being? But, tea, in my experience, actually makes more time and space than it takes. For instance, you may feel too busy to find time for tea. However, if you start drinking tea, I guarantee 100% you'll become less busy. Slowing down time and creating space could be a matter of simplicity, contentment or abundance. On the otherhand, it could be more literal than all that. 

How do you measure time? Hours, episodes, accomplishments, likes? When you measure in steeps and pots, a new time is born. If you energize that time through the ritual of tea, there is all kinds of space for creativity, deepening connection, feeling oneself, keeping good company, or just being.

When, through tea, you connect to the seasons, time becomes cyclical and life takes on a sense of carefree health and relaxed activity. To be spring, summer, fall and winter is to approach timelessness. With tea on hand, you can find this time wherever you go. Thus with a new relationship to the flow of life, you might find that tea has made space for itself in your world, and actually made a space for you to move about and be yourself. Then, sharing that space with another is as easy as making a pot of tea.
