Contents of Sharing Thick Tea

The sharing a bowl of thick tea is the high point of a tea gathering—ideally a kind of shared kensho or seeing one's true nature.

The guest at a tea ritual holds a red Raku-type bowl of thick green tea in her hands. Only her hands and the bowl can be seen. There are tatami mats and the bronze  lid of a tea kettle on a bamboo stand in the background.
