Recently, Master Matsumoto Sosei, the highest ranking Ura Senke tea master in North America, was interviewed by the East West Lifestyle magazine. The article effectively communicates the virtues of tea in under 300 words, so I thought I would post it for all to enjoy.

Our relationship with Master Matsumoto Sosei in North America dates back over 20 years. We look forward to working with her and her students next year at the 2007 World Tea Expo in Atlanta, Georgia where they will be conducting a workshop and a ceremonial tea demonstration. We hope that all of you will be able to join us in this truly unique and rare opportunity.
