Kumamoto tea master teaches Tokyoites

In this photo, Kumamoto tea master Kazuya Matsumoto pours tea at an event in Ueno Park to teach young people the joy of brewing tea the traditional way — with loose leaves and a teapot.

Even in Japan, many busy folks are opting for the convenience of bottled green tea, but like many who try it, the two lasses below no doubt quickly discovered that brewing loose-leaf tea delivers taste and aroma that bottled tea cannot even approach — and it is fun and relaxing, too.

See? That's all there is to it.
