The Neighborhoods of Santa Fe, New Mexico-Jo Shin An Tea House

The Neighborhoods of Santa Fe, New Mexico-Jo Shin An Tea House

As most of you know, my wife, Tonia, hosts the experience of the tranquility of Tea inside the four and a half tatami mat tearoom at the authentic Jo Shin An Tea House.  Here, one can savor the atmosphere and flavors of the tearoom in a seasonally inspired tea gathering.  While the hosts share the theme of the season, guests are invited to have a bowl of tea and a traditional Japanese sweet.  Guest signing up for these public teas do not need to have any guest or tea experience.  Stools are provided for the comfort of those with difficulty sitting directly on the tatami mats.

Tonia is now taking advanced reservations for three public ceremonies with two seatings each.

The Neighborhoods of Santa Fe, New Mexico-Camino Pequeno

The Neighborhoods of Santa Fe, New Mexico-Camino Pequeno

Dear followers:

On several social media channels I publicized “A Walk in the Woods” highlighting Camino Pequeno.  I made a mistake publicizing this access through posted private property, and regret the impact on the Camino Pequeno community.  There is no wildlife preserve or other publicly-accessible conservation land accessible from Camino Pequeno.  I advise you to respect private property and avoid trespassing on Camino Pequeno.

With highest regards,

Michael Umphrey
