Art and Tea

Surrounding myself with Art while drinking tea is very important. I can see clearly of the artist emotion, with the help of tea.

What is your favorite paring while drinking tea?

Big window with a sight on japanese style garden, it can also be considered art. For now i can't enjoy it all the time, but sure this would be my choice of art to go with tea. My window pointing to a garden too, but it's far from those works by pros.

I'm usually drinking tea while doing art, does that count? :)

In reality, though, I have art up all the time, so I don't usually bring out any specific pieces to look at while I have tea ... maybe I should start!

... generally always teaware art ... the lines, colors, textures ... beautiful art. And the added bonus of being able to pick TeawareArt items off of shelves and use them ... :mrgreen: ... well, simply awesome.

I like the living art as well, however tea is usually served in the "kitchen" and those windows do not offer interesting views.

Chinese Wisteria and Japanese Maples are just about in bloom, might have to take tea outside to enjoy this living art.

Tim I am so jealous of everything in that picture. I don't really have much art to look at while drinking tea in my usual spot. Most of the time I am staring at my cat while she stares at me. (Once she dipped her tail in my gaiwan.)
