Gifts from a fellow tea lover in Japan

This was a lovely surprise from a fellow tea blogger in Japan - Ms. Keiko Suzuki of But Tea.

But Tea

I saw her clay hand held roaster on her blog and inquired about acquiring one.
The store  - Ochauke-ya  ( where she purchased it at is in Japan.
However, the store does not deliver overseas, so Keiko-san, gifted me a roaster.
 I received her package yesterday and was quite surprised to find some other precious goodies in it.

Kuki-Cha - these leaves to be roasted in the Houroku (roaster)

Houji -Cha (roasted tea) - from Kaga, Ishikawa

Japanese black tea from Kagoshima, Japan
Japanese black tea from Nara, Japan

She even made a booklet for me in English with beautiful photos.

The Roaster - Houroku

Japanese sweets - Candied Ginger

Thank you to Keiko-san for her kindness, generosity and thoughtfulness.
