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!

Tenugui @ Starbucks!!!! Simon is from NY and he works at Starbucks. One day he was chatting with his co-worker on Japanese festivities, and somehow Tenugui came up during their conversation.

Several days later, he went down to St. Marks place ( @ East Village, is located east downtown in Manhattan, and there are a number of Japanese restaurants there!) for Udon (Japanee noodle)?and Yakitori (Japanese BBQ), and saw some of the kitchen staff wearing tenugui as their chef hats.
So, Simon asked them about their tenugui and then he visited a web-site called Chopsticks NY. Chopsticks NY is a free?magazine and ?web-site, introducing Japanese culture, restaurants, shops, and much more information in greater New York.

So,?Simon found our site through chopsticksNY, and now~~~ Ladies and Gentleman!!!!
Welcome to Japanese Tenugui Fan Club! He loves tenugui now!

Simon-san, you look so handsome with your Wood tenugui, and the color is perfectly matching @ your work. Great Pick!!!! Thank you very much for sharing your tenugui story with us.

I always love to hear Tenugui story from all over the world.
How about your tenugui story?????

Do you know?about “Freestyle Rolling”??

I just received great photos from Tenugui lovers Tito who does Freestyle Rolling. I didn’t know anything about this new sport, so I checked their web-site www.irollny.com
WOW!!! They are amazing!!!! Action, vision, style and music… all mingled together, it’s Art of Rolling!

Tito sent me a sweet tenugui story, so I would like to share it with y’all;

“I lived in Minami-Uonuma, Niigata Japan for two years as an english teacher for elementary and junior high school students. Those were the best two years of my life!
One day, a friend gave me a tenugui as a present, and from that day on I never took it off!
I really love wearing my tenuguis even here in New York City.
Most people do not know about it, so they always ask me,
“why are you wearing a towel on your head?”
It’s really good conversation starter, and it gives me a chance to live and share my love of Japan and it’s people with native New Yorkers. It connects me to Japan, and besides that I just think its looks COOL!”

Thank you, Tito for sharing your Tenugui story!
Yes, you are very cool with your Tenugui, and your Freestyle Rolling!!!!
