Blessing - Tea Event at a Shrine-

An annual tea event was held at a shrine in Kyoto. Thirty-three tea stands open at the precinct this year. We enjoy not only Japanese tea, but also Taiwanese, Chinese and even Turkish teas. Isn't that exciting? 

It was so hot for this time of the year, but  good for  "teastand-hopping" while sampling tea, chatting with the owners and bumping into a lot of tea friends. The event has nothing to do with religion. That's more like the one to enjoy tea. Still tea is a blessing. Always...
