MLK Tea Ceremony Senshin’an Tea Room in Watson Pavilion
Senshin'an - Japanese Tea Room in the Watson Pavilion 洗心庵
Washington and Lee University's new Japanese Tea Room was named Senshin'an 洗心庵 "Clearing-the-Mind Abode" by Sen Genshitsu, 15th-generation Grand Master of the Urasenke Tradition of Tea. This architectural treasure was built in the Watson Pavilion on campus, where it serves as a classroom laboratory for the study of Chanoyu 茶の湯, or the Way of Tea, and a center for cultural activities relating to the arts of Japan.
