Today me and dear Hanna went to Théhuone, a very good Finnish teashop, for a tea tasting event.The event was truly wonderful! It was so nice to just dedicate the whole evening for enjoying tea. The hostess of the evening also told us about the history of tea and the different cultural aspects it has. I already knew most of the things she said, but still it was nice to listen and I even learned a little bit new. So yes, I warmly recommend this to anyone who loves tea. Maybe the best part about it was that I got to taste many teas I haven't tried before, and that kind of teas also that I wouldn't really want to purchase.
We tasted Chinese white tea "Silver Needle", which was my favorite, and Japanese macha and sencha (which I really didn't like, they were too bitter to my taste), then some milk oolong and lots of different pu'ers. And then some pictures!
Japanese sencha called "Kura", very pretty colour though the taste wasn't so good.
Green tea chocolate. It was yummy, I also bought this to take home with me.
This is a tea set used in a traditional Chinese tea ceremony for enjoying oolong. I didn't even know Chinese have their own tea ceremony, so this was very interesting piece of news! Also this teaset was too cute - teeny tiny, the tea pot is the same size as my fist. On the top there sits a little frog on the lotus flower, and the frog's eyes also move if you turn the botle in your hands. So adorable.
With pu'er they also served these treats. They were delicious and I'm definitely going to make something like this myself in the future.
For this occasion I wanted to wear something simple and toned down, as I didn't want to draw too much attention away from the tea itself. So I wore quite casual classic.
My Grandmother gave me this clock when I was small. It doesn't work anymore, but it's so pretty I sometimes still wear it.
And then to the exciting news! I just got eye glasses to wear at school lessons and other occasions where I need to see far. The optician recommended I don't wear them all the time, as my eye sight is still quite good - which means that I get to wear them as a nice accessory! I really like my glasses, and they seem to go pretty well with at least classic lolita. I'm already planning an outfit to go with these... x)
