i’ve been fixed on this powdered green tea for the past few months – it is good and good for you. thru the summer weather i’ve been drinking it cool or room temp by shaking it up real good in a juice bottle. for these chilly autumn mornings it’s nice to go hot.
for whatever reason – i’ve been putting off buying a proper chasen (bamboo matcha wisk) – i’m sure to settle on one soon.
in the present i am using this wonderful spoon that was made for me by Rodney at Penland in the Spring of 2oo5.
the stoneware bowl is a simple beauty made by former Carbondale potter, Nancy Barbour, who has just taken the helm at Mendicino Arts Center.
if you click and expand the photo above – you can see a green dragon rising from the bowl – or that may just be me…
