Most of the time for me, the day-to-day
"ritual" involved focuses mainly on the pieces of teaware that I am going to use. As a potter and someone with many Japanese and western potter friends, I am fortunate to have an extensive collection of possible pieces from which to chose. I match the pieces to the "mood of the day", so to speak. It is fun contemplating this. ("Who will I visit with today?")
Secondarily, I spend some time deciding on the particular tea that I want to have. About 98 percent of the time it is Japanese greens....... but I usually have a number of them around to choose from ranging from really good loose ones I pick up while in Japan or down to < "horrors" > a green tea in a BAG placed oh-so-respectfully in an American Chawan (mug)!!!!! (Yes.. I admitted it!
When I do matcha for me by myself alone it almost always involves using the washitsu heya I have in my home. It is a soothing quiet place. This is when I have to time to take to really enjoy the smell, taste, sounds, and so on.
Sometimes I will invite someone over for tea and then the full blown set of Chanoyu stuff from furo and chagama to flowers and scroll is set up in the converted chashitsu (room can be slighly altrered). But this is by no means "day-to-day".
