Woman's World has become one of my favorite magazines.
It is quick to read, chocked full of a wide variety of articles of interest to women,
easy to carry while out and about, and almost always has an article or a
quick tidbit about tea, often highlighting tea's health benefits.
The March 31st issue has a one-page article giving many good tips
for planning a Japanese tea party, from decorating to the menu.
What a fun idea!
Of course, you *must* serve a Japanese green tea.
My tea of choice of tea for this party would be
Elmwood Inn Fine Teas Cherry Rose Green Tea,
a Japanese sencha green tea with rose petals and cherries.
I can imagine sitting among the cherry blossoms enjoying this tea party.
