Nice cups of tea (green)

A nice cup of tea, chawan in Japanese.
I like green tea, his bitterness to be softened by a little sweet, there are so many different types, changing every season, the most fantastic are wagashi, little sweet only for tea ceremony, little masterpieces. Here, at home in a late afternnon the sun rays coming from the windows, all the little cups, silently aligned ordinately and patiently waiting to be called to perform their duty, warming up in a lukewarm midwinter sun.
