Cup of Ceremony
Exploring layers beneath the surface

 Inspired by the Japanese tea ceremony rituals, Cup of Ceremony is an experience for all senses. Focusing on meaning rather than the object itself, customers can enjoy the hospitality of a host in an atmosphere distinct from the fast pace of everyday life.

Started in Spring 2019 with a pop up store in San Francisco, Cup of Ceremony offers 4 distinct scents in the form of a candle: Wa-Harmony, Kei-Respect, Sei-Purity, and Jaku-Tranquility. Each candles are handcrafted by the host to trigger unique memories. Customers are also invited to participate in a ceremonial ritual that starts with a cup of tea and desserts, followed by a multi-hour candle fragrance blending workshop.

 A rich pour of winter’s wheat drawn from generous land. Wraps me in a wholesome song of sweet and silken strands.

Wa Harmony


Memories flicker from the scent of honeyed coals. Stories honored and retold.

kei respect


 Spring sunlight wakes the world, and young, bright leaves unfurl. The morning mist clears, leaving us a cool breeze of green.

Sei Purity


 Warm, a spreading sweetness folded between spice and incense. And now we have time for poetry.

Jaku Tranquility
