Originally nicknamed TT bench for the structure of bench that creates two letter T forms, we decided to call the bench Time for Tea, remembering the generously proportioned benches outside the roadside tea houses seen in popular Japanese TV period dramas providing respites for tired legs as well as place for meetings. As the name suggests, its simple form and warmth of the material invite you to sit down and enjoy a little break.
