Shichi-go-san tea time...sandwich with tea and seafood...favorite There was the last Sunday tea time of the year at Mother Leaf in Higashi Ginza. We made "special blended Christmas tea" and had it with sandwiches and cakes. The blended tea is candy blended with earl grey, cardamom, eau de cologne mint, lemongrass and rosehip. . . Everyone was delighted with the gentle scent and taste. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ . With my father and mother... I'm a little pretentious, but they look happy! It's shichi-Go-San! After visiting the shrine, I had tea and my favorite seafood sandwich (baked in a waffle maker) at my usual shop. And the tea is also the usual iced tea. "Someday I'll work at Dimbula." Congratulations!
