They tell us we shouldn’t meet in person? Well then, we will meet online!
On 25th March together with our Tea Fellows we held our first online tea gathering – Global Japanese Tea Party. The 6 people that joined represented 2 continents and 8 countries (just because we are so global!). Each brought 1-2 Japanese teas to brew themselves and introduce them to the others. We had some teas from Kyoto, Nagasaki and Ibaraki.
Some of us knew each other, some of us met for the first time, but drinking tea together everyone felt like an old friend and 1.5h passed without notice. Because of the great enthusiasm from everyone in the first session we are planning to hold these events again and hope we can make it into a weekly tradition.
