I will bring a teapot matched to the tea I select to brew, and a couple of cups; bring a few extra teas and a gaiwan just in case we already have 20 oolongs and not enough puerh; and mostly some tea-free treats to eat with the tea. Whether the tea treats will be homemade tarts or cookies or cakes will depend on what I'm craving at the time, and what everyone else is bringing. Since artmom has the shortbread covered, I'll cross that off the list. Would you prefer butter cookies? Savory flatbreads? Fruit tarts? Currant scones? Dried fruit and nut platter?
So far today, just sencha and cereal--but sencha in the new kyusu,
and new guinomi
so it was already a treat!
