If you enjoy tea history the Arthur M. Sackler Gallery in Washington, D.C might be worth a trip. From now until July 27th the gallery is hosting an exhibit called "Chigusa and the Art of Tea". The exhibit is small but thorough in its examination of the Chigusa, a jar used to store tea leaves. Also on display are various tools used in the Japanese tea ceremony, video demos and a replica of a Japanese tearoom. The exhibit is also filled with Chinese calligraphy and diary entries from tea men from as far back as the 16th century. It's a unique and educational exhibit that successfully creates a Zen like atmosphere. The museum is free and photos are not allowed in the exhibit.
