A lovely tea friend from Japan recently sent me some fantastic tea-related gifts! I thought I'd share a few with you here.
Lupicia Teas -- Outer Packaging
Lupicia Teas -- Inner Packaging
(Clockwise from Bottom Left) Tea Stickers, Kaishi (Japanese tea ceremony napkin-type papers), matcha sweets (pictured last), paper crane paper (How Postmodern!), a teapot/teacup cloth napkin, kyusu (teapot) chopstick rests (bottom) and a teacup-covered napkin (center)
Tea candies, a geisha postcard and youkan (delicious red bean/agar-agar sweets -- Oishi! (Delicious!))
A tasty matcha-based desert. I paired it with sencha. Yum!
