Free Tea in Japan

dsc 0214

Location: Lake Toya, Japan. At our WWOOF host’s festival-party-cultural-event-thing

Date/Time: 11th July 2009 (ages ago, I know!)

Variety of Tea: Wild Tea. Made from a local wild herb. It’s an ancient remedy to everything, but then a cup of Tea always makes you feel better doesn’t it!

Cost: Free, if you know where to look.

Service: Made over an open fire by the Chief of the local Ainu tribe. He was the kind of guy who looks like he knows the all the secrets of the world.

Taste: Subtle herb taste and a hint of smoke from the fire. Like nothing else but right tasty.

Ambiance: Beautiful sunny day, calm lake on one side and mountains on the other. Very nice indeed.

Shadam rating: 8/10. A once in a lifetime cup of tea. A tasty brew in a beautiful setting, made by the chief of an ancient tribe. Sometimes, the best things really are free.
