The first tea lesson of 2010, hatsugama

How is it going everyone? The first tea lesson or tea ceremony of a year is called hatsugama. It is kind of special. Our muster says that in general masters invite their students, and serve tea to the students. So, at our hatsugama on Jan 6, she treated us with her tea. She played the host and served thick tea. It was little formal. The tea flower, sweets, and some utensils are different from usual. There was a sense of tension at the hatsugama, and we could enjoy the tea and the feeling.
Have a nice day!
