Tea Please

I received another invite to my host mother's tea ceremony teacher's house over the weekend. I had experienced the tea ceremony before at school and in Tama, but was informed that I would be practicing the "Okayama" style of tea ceremony, which differs from my previous teacher's "Kansai" style of tea. As of now, I am currently developing my own "Old Skool" style of tea preparation.

First, my host mother served me a cup of tea, then I tried my hand at the process, throughly confusing the left-hand/right-hand maneuvers but ultimately producing a nice cup of tea.

Lunch with Mio followed the tea ceremony at the delicious Jacasse.

  • the russian tea ceremony might be good and in fact includes some exciting tea accessories, but it only began after the seventeenth century, imported from china.

    which is why the creation of the "old skool" tea ceremony, which will encompass all forms of tea presentation will be such a great success
