Using Tenugui as a tea towel

Using Tenugui as a tea towel

We received beautiful photos from Tenugui Fan Blair from San Diego, California. He is a Tea master, and use his Tenugui to handle his tetsubin (Iron tea pot). He said that Tenugui is perfect for holding the hot lid and wiping down a tetsubin to keep it looking great and rust free. He keep one handy for all tea sessions.

Blair practice Cha-No-Yu, Sencha-Do and Chinese Gongfu-Cha. He use a different seasonal themed tenugui every month to handle his cast iron tea kettle. Tenugui keeps him focused on the moment and the season at hand while protecting his fingers from the hot kettle. He use tenugui with his tetsubin for both japanese Sencha-Do and Chinese Gongfu-Cha as a tea towel.

Surely, Tenugui can use many different ways. Thank you Blair for sharing your Tenugui Story with us. Let’s have a cup of tea, with your Tenugui!
