My thought today about teaching is that if I could find someone who wanted to learn about good teas I could share what little I know, and then I'd have someone to drink tea with. Then it would sometimes be a social activity, rather than always being solitary. I did just finish a session of Gyokuro Tsuru Jirushu O-Cha, prepared in my two-person shiboridashi set. I drank both cups from each steep, and it would have been fun to share. Still, the tea was delicious, and I used the quiet time to study my new hobby.
Does that sound too sad? I'm actually drinking tea alone while doing something else I would ordinarily do alone, like read.
