October Tea Ceremony Demonstration

Blueberry (foliage), grasses, California poppy, yarrow and acuba
This month's Chado demonstration was Sunday, Oct. 10. We had expectations of low- to no turnout, but we thought that if no one showed up we could make a bowl of tea for ourselves then pack up and go home. To our delight we had six people attend (best attendance yet!), including a friend and two Chinese tourists who were passing by.

Harvey-sensei talked about guest etiquette, and how to receive and appreciate a bowl of tea. Our guests had many questions, which he enjoyed answering.

In order to enjoy the upcoming holiday season we are putting off our our next tea gathering until January. We will post the date and time when confirmed.
