As a tea ceremony master, I would like to continue to practice the way of tea in the post-pandemic context concerning various fields such as herbalism, alchemy, anthropology, ecology, sensory analysis, science, eastern and western philosophy. Hence I came up with a new concept of a tearoom as Ecologia to connect two worlds of .exeotopia and U-topia.
