Tea House


This is a tea house, where the ladies dress in kimono, and perform the ancient Japanese art of the tea ceremony.
No tea bags here, but specially brewed tea served in hand- thrown cups ( no handles).
I have realised that the English way of pouring boiling water on the leaves actually burns the tea, and we don’t really savour the taste. I hope this appreciation lasts when I get home, and am gulping my mug of Earl Grey!
