A humble abode of tea drinking & syntropic connection for over 20 years. The small teahouse sits within an old artisan gallery by the lively shore of legendary Ocean Beach. Cinthia & James, the current keepers of this historic & sacred space, continue to serve the local community & passing travelers, teaching intentional ways of connecting with plants & practicing the art of being in the present moment.
