It’s happening again. Boston Teawrights is hosting another Summer internship program. This year we’re working with Ryan. You’ll likely see his face around these parts from time to time, and we hope it’s an enjoyable experience. So let’s start with his introduction.
Introducing, Ryan Hallihan!
Today, I’m excited to announce that Boston Teawrights will work with Boston’s own Bread & Salt Hospitality on their upcoming restaurant & cafe in Somerville’s Union Square. While Teawrights is just one small component in their project, it’s huge for us!
Our adventures crafting tea with Chef Josh Lewin of Bread and Salt Hospitality. Creating a black tea, green tea, and a James Beard dinner, oh my!
The Book of Tea is an essay written by Kakuzo Okakura in 1906. It’s considered one of the classics of tea culture and has held a wide influence for more than a century. In his essay, Okakura addresses us (the Western audience) and discusses the role of tea in Japanese culture. In this seventh part, Okakura discusses the influence of the Tea Masters on Japanese history, culture and society, and closes with Rikiu.
Teawrights is about more than just tea. In all that we do, we believe in the spirit of exploration, discovery and craft. These are the channels that spark the imagination, and in turn arouse the Human Spirit. Practicing the art of tea draws upon these channels, making it a spiritual pursuit that arouses our Humanity.
Keeping this in mind, it’s only natural that thoughts wander to other pursuits in exploration, discovery and craft. To inspire you, we’ve brought together several articles from across the internet. Create, enjoy, inspire.
