tea master coming to sf

SenookuI am looking forward to seeing tea presentations by the Future Grand Master of the Mushakoji Senke tradition of tea, Sen So-oku. This gentleman is the heir apparent┬áto one of the oldest and most important tea traditions spanning 400+ years back to Sen Rikyu. When his father, the 14th generation head,┬ápasses on or retires, he will become the 15th generation head or “iemoto” of the tradition.

Program details will be posted on the website soon, but if you wish to save the date, he will present on June 12 and June 13.
