A week ago, I went to a Japanese tea garden! The garden is in Hasselt; that's a place in Belgium.
We went earlier, because we wanted to take a look at the garden before the ceremony would start. The garden was beautiful, there were a lot of waterfalls, flowers, trees and some cosy houses.
When the tea ceremony started, we had to go to a small house. There was a man and a women in the house. The women was wearing a kimono. (see picure beneath)
The man showed us how a tea ceremony works. They had to do many things before they could drink the tea! First you could eat something very sweet (like candy) because the tea was very bitter. The tea was not given at the same time to everybody, they hand it out person for person.
When I finaly had the tea, it tastes like spinach, haha! But never mind, it was a very nice tea ceremony! If you love tea, and Japan; you should have to visit the Japanese tea garden in Hasselt!
I really enjoyed it!
