Omogashi, sweets for chanoyu

This is slightly off topic, but I want to describe what an enjoyable day I had yesterday. After we went out for lunch I made a quick and casual bonryaku tea at home for my friend so that we could share the beautiful omogashi, moist sweet, that another friend kindly brought back from her recent trip to Japan. Even though omogashi are usually served with koicha, thick tea, we enjoyed it with usucha.

It was hot outdoors.The sweets looked cool on the white plate that I made and the matcha looked refreshing through the clear glass chawan. It was a lovely, spontaneous, ichi-go ichi-e moment.

Then I visited my daughter and sweet 2 week old grandson. What a wonderful day!
