Chabana or other tea arrangements

by blairswhitaker » Feb 6th, '10, 17:02

So this fits into the Accessories section. For me tea is about a lot more than tea, Creating an "atmosphere" weather it's for Sencha-do, Cha xi or Cha-No-yu, flowers are the first step to bringing the "outside" in. please share I would love to see what other like to display no matter your style.

Inviting a woodsy damp atmosphere as though it just rained in the forest, thinking outside of the box with my vase.

This is so beautiful! Thank you for posting the pictures. "Rain in the forest" is simply awesome. I think I should add flower arrangements to my tea experience too :)

a few more arrangements. I really hope someone else has something to "show off". I know I cant be the only person on the forum practicing the centuries old art of tea and vase/flower pairing. some of you must collect vases as well???

Uh oh.
An invitation to more teaware.
I haven't practiced chabana at all, but have been thinking about it.
Hmmm.
I am inspired by this thread and all that is in it.

nice vase victoria, Great to see someone else finally take an interest in showing their arrangement.

Seeker, a single flower can bring SO much nature into your tea experience, I almost have a hard time NOT including something of the likes.
