February Tea Ceremony Demonstraton

Ready for Ryakubondate, photo by Lauraven Dodd

Four lovely people attended our latest Chanoyu demonstration last Sunday, including a young lady who had taken a weekend seminar at Humboldt State University in 2006.

Harvey explained procedures and a little history behind the ceremony. Laura did a great job in the mizuya -- and took this photo. I did Ryakubondate -- not particularly well, but that didn't seem to matter too much to our guests. I still enjoyed making the tea and we all enjoyed drinking it!

Our next tea gathering will be on March 20. If you're in the area, please join us!
