Tea utensils, such as a tea cup and a tea caddy are always on the dining table in my house.
It's to make tea whenever I wish.
These utensils are just for entertaining and having tea ,for casual tea ceremony.
The square box used to be a tobacco tray at mother's house.
This is a Shino tea cup that my mother made herself.
The color of red clay in the bottom is a little transparent and soft grayish patterns look nice.
It's perfect in size and in weight.
I don't have breakfast in the morning.
Instead, I boil the water in the kettle ,make a cup of Matcha and eat some dry Japanese sweets ,Wasanbon.
That makes my sleepy head clear and it's nice to see sparrows in the garden.
I walk briskly to the office.
The bitter green of "Matcha" (finely-milled Japanese green tea) and its soft froth. After its unique fresh scent, a powdery sweetness warmly stays around.
