Chabana or other tea arrangements

by blairswhitaker » Feb 6th 10 10:02 pm

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.

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.
