      Noble Cousin!



      Greetings from Solveig! Do not worry about the bowls so much. The

      major requirement for the bowls is that they not be either too small

      or too big and that they have a raised lip on their base. If you keep

      this in mind, you may be able to find bowls at your local Goodwill

      store. Barring that approach, you can buy bowls from Tea Circle:



      http://www.tea- circle.com/



      Technically, you really do not need to have more than one bowl.

      Further, a correct temae usually does not involve more than two

      bowls. This allows you to be making tea in one bowl while a guest is

      drinking tea from the other bowl. This can be extended to perhaps

      three bowls max. Quick tea demos do tend to abbreviate things with

      lots of bowls. In this case, one bowl is made for the head guest, and

      once the head guest takes a sip and pronounces the tea acceptable, a

      group of assistants come out from a back room carrying individual

      bowls of tea for all the guests. This is all assuming that you are

      making usucha. For koicha, you make precisely one bowl of tea which

      is passed from guest to guest with each guest taking three sips in turn.



      Your Humble Servant
