Casual matcha at the Toso Festival


At the festival, we found a tea stall serving matcha with tea bowls made by local artists. It was not a formal tea ceremony and anybody could enjoy matcha casually. Ladies who serve tea were wearing the traditional kimono. We paid and sat on a bench that is covered with red drape. Two ladies were playing Japanese harps there. Sweets were served first. They are from a local confectionary shop, called Takaraya.



Then, matcha was served in a moment. The tea bowls were quite beautiful. The matcha was also from a local shop, Kokaen where I frequently buy tea from. I don’t usually think that matcha tastes good when I eat out, but I’m really satisfied with the taste of matcha served at this event. o(^▽^)o It was nice to relish matcha with clear melody of Japanese harps.



What I was surprised about was the price. This tea set (confection and matcha) was just 300yen. It is a very reasonable price. If you had this kind of tea set at other places, it would cost about bouble. I think this event is very good to try matcha for beginners. Not only because of the price, but also because this event didn’t require any special manners for tea ceremony. You can causally enjoy Japanese harp and good matcha served by the ladies wearing kimono. If you have never tried matcha, you gotta travel to Seto for your first bowl next year!

  11. This revolution, the information revoultion, is a revolution of free energy as well, but of another kind: free intellectual energy. It's very crude today, yet our Macintosh computer takes less power than a 100-watt bulb to run it and it can save you hours a day.
