Unique Teapot Art

New Year's Day is fast approaching and although tea might not be the universally preferred drink of the day, or more specifically, the night, it is favoured in a temple in Kyoto and served at an event called "Oubukucha" held on New Year's Day. At the temple, tea is served to people with pickled ume and cooked kelp inside the cups. It is said if people drink Obukucha on the first day of the new year, they will have good health all through the year. 

Drink tea and be healthy!
