Sei can mean purity as in Wa Kei Sei Jaku, the famous principles of tea.

This include cleanliness both physical and spiritually. This is closely related to the Tsukubai, where one cleans hearth and mind as well as the physical. Purification of all utensils before the guests.

It can also be taken to men orderliness.
