Art of Tea on the eve of Yom Kippur

In a few hours it will be Yom Kippur - The Day of Atonement. 
It merits mention because forgiveness is the key component that all seek even when a small demerit is committed against our fellowmen. 
Atonement is really about making peace with oneself because until this occurs we will never be able to achieve the altruistic ideals of world peace. 

We stand in solidarity with all sentient beings that this achievement of peace begins with the simple act of forgiveness. 
We forgive ourselves first before we can forgive another. 

The Art of Tea is about contemplation and meditation that can leads us to certain revelations when we need to unwind from the aggressions of our busy minds.
So, when we sip our next cup of tea, we remember those making a concerted effort on Yom Kippur to remind us what true accountability is, saying you are sorry and meaning it without having to be coerced.

We stand with our practicing Jewish friends and customers on this Yom Kippur by turning our teacups over  for 25 hours.

Blessed Yom Kippur.
