Akira Takemoto, 62, once counted waves off the southern California coast to find the perfect swell for his surfboard. Now, he looks for different waves: not the aquamarine of the ocean but the frothy green swirls of tea in his tea bowl. Takemoto has practiced the Yabunouchi style of tea ceremony since 1976, when he lived in Japan for four years to study Japanese language and Buddhism.
