We had the honour of hosting 8 students and their teacher from Waseda Shibuya Senior High’s tea club on 19 November. We had far more helpers this year, which made the event a more lively one. In a departure from the usual serving of Usucha (thin tea), Koicha (thick tea) was served this time around. This year marks the third year that the club has had this exchange programme.
