    習ひをばちりあくたぞと思へかし、書物は反古腰張にせよ narai oba chiri akuto zo to omoekashi kakimono wa hago koshibari ni se yo 

    It is wise to think teachings become dust and dirt:
    In the end, our notes and books are best used to line tearoom walls as paper skirt

nicoleannmartin ,

Yay for a well produced tea podcast!

There aren't a lot of podcasts out there for tea lovers. I recently stumbled upon TeaLife Audio and I'm so glad that I did. The hosts are knowledgeable but don't take themselves too seriously. I enjoy their banter and learning more about cha do with each episode.

Katie Bechtold ,

yay, a chanoyu podcast!

I'm so happy there's now a podcast dedicated to the Way of Tea! I listened to the first three episodes on my way to and from okeiko yesterday, and I really enjoyed hearing the hosts' takes on historical anecdotes from the world of tea and thoughts about doing tea outside Japan. I very much look forward to more episodes!
