When you join Matchaparty, you are entering an exclusive world of tea tasting and performance.
In cha no yu this threshold is called the "crawl through gate" - the nijiriguchi.
On one side is the garden of tears, the living breathing experience of life in its interconnected richness as we live.
On the other side, through the crawl through gate, is life as art, where nature and culture are intentionally harmonized through practice and resonate through spontaneous rhythm with seasons that flow through the self and others - the wilderness of the heart in a cup of tea.
When you join Matchaparty we will send you exclusive interviews of the "floating world" with geisha, tea artists, and invites to tea events in NYC and Kyoto.
