Washi Washi

As promised here at the pictures of the washi box and three tiered tin that I picked up from Cha Ma Gu Dao, a local tea house. The washi box is basically a wooden box with a tin lining, covered in washi paper. It is my dream to have tons of these things and the space to store them, not likely to happen though as they are rather expensive. The three tiered tea tin has been very useful, especially for when I am traveling. I finally bit the bullet and ordered all necessary tools to make matcha. I am excited and terrified at the same time. Pictures will be forthcoming once all of my new toys arrive.
