Shop Update: August 28, 2020
It is with sadness that I close Tekuno's retail shop in the Dogpatch, starting September 1st. We opened our doors right as Shelter-in-Place orders began, and it has been one of the most challenging, intensive experiences I have been fortunate to have. With the future so uncertain, it is necessary for Tekuno to temporarily go virtual so that we may reopen a shop in the future.
In the meantime, Tekuno will invest in sharing tea knowledge through its online shop, photography/videos, and collaborations with local artists. I would be grateful for your continued support via our online shop, Instagram community, and Youtube channel.
There is an idiom in Japanese tea ceremony, chadō, that says: "ichi-go, ichi-e." It translates to "one moment, one meeting," or simply that each interaction is unique and cannot be repeated; thus, each encounter is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. I feel this with each person I had the fortune of meeting during Tekuno's first retail shop. I am very grateful for the memories we have shared. Since its beginning, Tekuno has existed to inspire meaningful connections through tea. I look forward to the next time we can share a cup of tea together.
