Kaizen Tea Set / Household Ritual

Kaizen Tea Set
Kaizen Tea Set

Based on the principles of Kaizen;'Continuous improvement' and Karma Yoga;'discipline in action', this ritual based product, is more than a beverage making household tool, it is a process of slowing down at the end of the day, reflecting on daily positive moments and sharing it with loved ones.
How it works: Each one picks up a warm and damp stone from the pile dips it in the flavour and tea, then shares a positive thought and throws it in the pot that is heated by the candle below. A couple of rounds later the residue is a collection of happy thoughts and a satisfying cup of tea.
