reese getting in touch with her inner geishaIn our latest celebriTEA watch, we found this article which described how Legally Blond actress Reese Witherspoon took some time out to serve tea for a good cause. The event, held in Tokyo, Japan, was organized to help spread awareness of breast cancer and domestic violence.

Reese is well versed in the field, as an official goodwill ambassador to the United Nations Development Fund for Women (UNIFEM), sponsored by Avon. She got some instruction on the Japanese tea ceremony, and was soon serving it up to breast cancer survivors (check out the video).

It is especially fortuitous that she served green tea, as it has been shown to significantly reduce the chances and raise the survival rate of breast cancer.

Through this tea ceremony, Reese and Avon are trying to raise money on a global scale to help raise awareness of domestic violence against women. That’s a powerful cup of tea.
