28568Re: Tea at Estrella
- Sep 9 9:01 PMFriends,
I feel I must express myself further, in way of explanation.
I do not expect to do this ceremony justice; I understand there are many who learn and practice for years--most of their lives even.
There are very few Asian personas in my kingdom, and most of them Mongolian.
It is my hope that this will bring some exposure of Japanese culture to my friends and family in the SCA.
While I am a rapier fighter of no mean skill, and a passing fair Pursuivant.
I would be lying if I said I was not more than a little intimidated by this undertaking.
Your humble servant,
Koga Takashiro Kagehiro
AtenveldtYou're just jealous because the voices talk to me....

Noble Cousin!Greetings from Solveig! What is meant by "assist"? Are they expecting you to run a tea ceremony and be the person making tea? Or are they asking you to be part of the ceremony? Do you folks have the equipment required for making tea in a period manner? I have seen booklets in English published by Midorikai which have somewhat abbreviated instructions on how to conduct a tea ceremony, but I don't know whether they are available at this time. I have similar instructions which are in Japanese (there are lots of photographs).
