Teasim, a collection of Asian-inspired teahouses that infuse the cultures of tea and the ideals of teaism with the informality and casualness of America, A collection of critically acclaimed restaurants that produce simple foods from the cuisines of tea, Bento boxes from Japan, curries from Thailand, and tandoor breads from India. A collection of tea shops with an abundance of tea accessories and exhibitions of work by local potters and artists.
