January 20th (Saturday): World History of British Tea
Why and how did tea, which was born in China, become established in England? . . . . .
On Saturday, January 20th, I will give a lecture at the Asahi Culture Center Shonan from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm.

This painting depicts an 18th-century gentleman drinking tea, sipping it from a saucer.
And this pretentious look.
It may seem a little comical, but this style contains a hidden history and culture of tea.
I'm sure there must be something in Japan that comes to mind.
What kind of incidents and episodes matched the tea that spread through sea routes? Please look forward to it on the day!
