Sen Rikyu, served as the Tea Master under two successive Daimyo (leaders) Oda Nobunaga and Hideyoshi Toyotomi. Sen Rikyu is considered the father of Tea Ceremony, his fame and reverence surpassing both time and distance. When he was ordered to commit ritual suicide or Seppuku, he held one last grand tea ceremony. At the conclusion of his final tea ceremony, he bequeathed all his priceless tea ware and unique tea implements to the guests present. All except one chawan. Sen Rikyu shattered this chawan in a dramatic fashion, exclaiming “Never again shall this cup, polluted by the lips of misfortune, be used by man”, so to forever preserve the essence of his most beloved possession.
You too can add an irreplaceable tea bowl to your matcha tea ware collection.
