Now, fortunately, I have a lot of free time and I decided to use him to dedicate every day to a different tea ceremony.
Of course chanoyu will have several days dedicated, otherwise it would be impossible to resist!
I also inaugurated the new location for the summer tea ceremonies: a wonderful roof terrace with panoramic views on all sides. Later also I put the photo of the location that is truly stunning.
On this occasion I used a natsume (tea container) in black lacquer with bamboo design and dew drops.
Chawan (the bowl where you can drink tea) is one of my favorite summer cups, while futaoki (ladle rests) is part of the collection of futaoki loved by Sen no Rikyu .
The photo below shows the arrangement of the tools at the end of the ceremony: you must mentally divide the upper part of the shelf top in three parts and bottom in four and place hishaku (ladle for water) so that it has the mouth on the intersection between the first and second upper space and the lower end of the handle in the intersection between the third and fourth.
The last photo shows the disposal instead (guest side) of the main four tools that are viewed during Haiken.
I leave you in company of the photos and ... good matcha at all!
