Japanese Tea Gathering
November 20, 2015 @ 12:00 pm - 2:45 pm
Join Morgan Pitelka (Asian Studies), members of the Japanese Tea Practitioners of Durham, and renowned Pittsboro potter Mark Hewitt for a conversation about tea rituals in Japan and the American South. In the following Japanese Tea Gathering, partake in a simple tenshin meal consisting of rice and a simple array of foods representing five flavors–bitter, sweet, fresh, sour, and salty. Conclude with a bowl of freshly whisked frothy matcha for a retreat from the late summer bustle. Space very limited; advance registration required.
