What I do in Japan when not buying tea

The life of a tea buyer is not all work – with some serious tea buying meetings looming large in the next two day, today was a day for goofing around.

Somehow, much of it still involves tea!

Eat some yummy grapes

Admire beautiful flower arrangementsSinging along with snow globe Santa

Eyeball-to-eyeball with a bowl of matcha

Take on a matcha challenge with my friend Yousef, the tea buyer for Harrods in London

Uhmm…..so good

Uh oh…….everyone wins and goes back to Edo period!  This is what happens when you drink too much matcha!
