day 278 - The Way of Tea

Yesterday our friend Itsuyo demonstrated Tea Ceremony (or, as it's often less-formally called now, 'The Way of Tea') with some of her students in her home overlooking Himeji castle.

Itsuyo swirls while she's explaining. Lyn took this one and I love it. You'd swear it was one of those Photoshop Gaussian Blurs or something, but it's just the way it came out in low light...

Exquisite Chrysanthemum mochi sweets served with the tea.

Whisking the matcha powdered tea.
