The exhibition "CRAFTS PEOPLE" by young craftsmen involved in traditional crafts in Kyoto and Shiga will be held at Kaikado Café from Friday, September 10, 2021. EN TEA tea masters will participate in "EXHIBITION 2021".
In this exhibition, we made two kinds of limited tea leaves that transfer the scent to the tea leaves using the depressive scraps received from Mr. Nakagawa Wood Crafts, Shiga.
Hinoki, which is a familiar wood for Japanese people, and Maki Takano, who is a sacred tree of Mt. Koya and has a sacred image. Based not only on the compatibility of the scents, but also on the impression of each piece of wood and its relevance to the lives of Japanese people, cypress is scented with roasted green tea with a sense of security, and Maki Takano is scented with kukicha, which is characterized by an elegant blue tint.
I made it with the idea that you can think of trees and mountains that grow powerfully in the distant mountains from the taste and scent of each, and the feel of the box.
The painting of the box is modest so that you can feel the scent of the wood itself, so you can store handkerchiefs and other items to transfer the scent after drinking tea.
