"I was in Paris in a Japanese festival the first
time I had a cup of
green hot tea.
A small pretty face with a soft voice handed me a cup
of hot green tea and a sweet rice cookie.
She told me to take a bit of the rice cookie first and
to follow with the green tea.
"Before you take the next sip, make sure you fully
twist the teacup clockwise, in other words, complete a circle."
Although it was very bitter and very green, I had to
drink it all.
Then one rice cookie was not enough. I needed at least
a dozen, I thought in my mind.
I love green tea.
"It's like a great massage."
