Happy 2015 and Happy Hot Tea Month!
I'm celebrating tea in all its many forms. Here are just a few: Afternoon tea (above, a recent tea party with my family, table styling by my 7-year old niece), Japanese green tea (below)...
Bowl-style oolong tea
Chinese-style gong fu tea
Japanese tea ceremony (That's me at Hatsugama, "first kettle," today.)
Mug tea and much more! No matter how you take your tea, may it be with a joyful heart. Best wishes for the new year!
