tea party

please come to my corner of the tea party where life will be sepia toned for a few seconds. we have some green tea from uji, the town famous for its fine tea, that we brought back with us. uji is on the train line a few stops from kyoto, you can see the hedges of tea bushes rolling over the hills in ridges from the train. this particular tea was a gift from some dear friends and so we only bring it out on special occasions like this. unfortunately we don't currently have a proper tea pot but we find that our french press serves the purpose quite well. i made some vegan chocolate cookies that are so good in fact, i will probably have to make more.




nico is joining the party, but please excuse him if he dozes off...


the purity of the tea washes the sepia away...



and don't worry, we have plenty of tea cups for everyone.
