Meditation Morning



Friday 5 July 2019

Coming Friday, I will give Gyokuro tea ceremony with my Banko teapot, after Sanny's Cashmere Yoga lesson.

I will use bio Gyokuro Green tea from Fujiwara town, Mie in Japan (next town I grew up).

This Green tea has a special taste, which refreshes in your month, sharpens mind and clears your body.

On coming Friday, the weather allows us to give our workshop outside on the green field!

And I am pretty much excited that I got chance to give Mie gyokuro green tea ceremony with teapots on Bussum green field!
