Today was the 100th day of morning tea. I’m very happy with this tradition and after one hundred consecutive days of tea I’m comitted to continue. Maybe 2014 will be the first year with tea every single day of the year.
Todays temae was Bondate. A while back I started to do also the longer temaes in the morning. Most of the mornings I time how long it takes as I’m curious to see if my speed at doing temae changes over time and to learn more about how much time things takes.
Some “fun” statistics from my first 100 days of temae:
Looking at all the temae they take at average 21 minues when I drink the tea my self, and 27 minutes when I make tea for two and share a bowl with my wife. Koicha takes five to six minutes longer than Usucha. Shikaden takes about four minutes longer than konorai temae to do on average.
