Como Park Japanese Tea Service was once again here. It was a beautiful day for the guests to visit Como Park and to try drinking Matcha, powdered green tea, in a Japanese Tea Service style. During the performance, initially, I was too nervous. I was afraid to do something wrong. When we study tea, our tea teachers always say "it is your tea and just do your best". After my 2 seconds of hesitation, I realized I only needed to do my best. One thing you learn to do when you learn tea is meditation. My mind was very focus on the task at hand. I forgot all my surrounding for a moment and tried to do my best. It turned out just fine despite all my worries (for nothing). Our guests were very engaged and asked a lot of questions - starting from the tea house itself, tatami mat (straw mat), other events and procedures of tea, etc. It was a great event. Please contact me if you would like to learn more. I will be doing more tea service in near future as we are trying to stir tea enthusiasts in Twin Cities.
