Mei, 30-something, tea lover from Sarawak, Borneo. More about.me.

I will be blogging mostly about tea,  and occasionally about tea wares and travel.

茶柱 (chabashira, lit. tea pillar) is the Japanese word for a tea stem floating upright in a teacup. Given its rarity, encountering a chabashira in one’s teacup is said to be a good omen.
