Hello, my name is Brad Lichtenstein

My mother took me to my first yoga class in the basement of our synagogue in a neighborhood outside of Pittsburgh, PA when I was only 7 years old. That was in 1971, and I have had an interest in meditation, mindfulness, Eastern philosophy and holistic health every since. Never much of a coffee drinker, I really fell in love with tea during college, as I would study with a pot of assams, chai, or oolong. One of the reasons I choose Bastyr University for naturopathic medical school back in 1991 was Teahouse Kuan Yin, which opened in the Wallingford neighborhood of Seattle only a few months before I landed here. Since then, I have dreamt of owning a meditation teahouse studio. I spent many a day and evening studying, journaling, imaging, envisioning, in essence, meditating over a cup of tea. 

This website combines my passions for meditative living and tea!
