      Ok, this is certainly the most ambitious menu of the almost 2 years
      of this series of dinner/concerts. Tea lovers will rejoice at this
      one; Donna and Nez of http://chadoen.com have supplied me with some
      truly amazing high quality green teas from Japan and oolongs and
      jasmine teas from China. All dishes will have tea as an ingredient
      and Nez and Donna will be serving many different teas through the
      evening.

      tea 1
      cold infused karigane

      soup

      (brown rice, umeboshi plum, kaiware (daikon sprouts), wakame
      (seaweed), toasted sesame seeds with a stock made from kombu, shitake
      and genmaicha

      tea 2
      cold infused Kyoto bancha

      salad
      cucumber wrapped in daikon slices with fried oolong tea leaves and
      apricot sauce

      tea 3
      Sakura/Aojiso/Gold Leaf tea (yeah, there really are gold flecks in
      this tea!)
