The second and third week of September we practiced Chabako-tsuki-demae.It is still hot over 30 degrees outside. Yet, the smell of cool autumn air is beginning to creep into the early mornings and nights. Chabako-tsuki-demse is one of the seasonal tea box series. Tsuki (moon) temae is often performed during the autumn since that is when the moon is most beautiful. Inside the tea boxes, you will find a round incense holder (moon) and white feather (cloud) next to the Furo.Tsuki-demae also is considered the most elegant and beautiful ritual among the Chabako series.This week, the picture on the scroll is grape and the sweet is Kuzu Mochi with sweet bean anko.
