Blog has been on hiatus because of various and sundry. The occasion for this entry is the arrival of my macha tea set.
The saga began when I bought a canister of macha from my friend Peggi at Tea Roses Tea Room. This version was powdered so I needed the accessories: a whisk and the suitable bowl.
They arrived this afternoon, and I rushed through chores and work so I could enjoy a cup.
The preparation involves pouring hot, not boiling water over a teaspoon of the powder. Then you whisk until it froths and the powder dissolves. Then you smile and sigh at that first warming bitter/astringent sip.
