Tea Tasting v2.0

Is it brandy or wine or is it tea? Which wine glass brings out the best of Jun Chiyabari tea? At a tea tasting event in Tokyo. The tea(s) was brewed the night before and left at room temperature and decanted into different types of wine glasses.


  1. Wow, they do look like wine. Fabulous pictures. And so Christmassy.

  2. Mediocre photographs :( but the tea tasted fine. I was surprised to find that the aroma varied as per the glass. I guess the shape and the volume of air within the glass made the difference to the olfactory modality. There are so many new things I have yet to learn in the tea universe.
