数茶・Kazucha

折据

先日「数茶」のお稽古をしました。七事式の一つです。客が札を引き、当たった客から亭主の点てた薄茶を順番に飲むというものです。詰が札元となり札の世話をします。

The other day we practiced “kazucha.”  It is one of the seven “shichijishiki“.  Each guest takes a card, and receives a bowl of tea when his/her card is called.  The last guest handles the cards.

「数茶」は七事式中で一番ゆるやかな式法だといわれますが、やはり慣れぬ稽古となるとぼちぼちしているわけにもいきません。とは言え、くじ引きの様な趣向なのでそれなりに楽しいものです。

Kazucha” is said to be the most relaxed of all “shichijishiki” – and yet we had to pay attention to the step-by-step process.  (Thus not much time to be relaxed.)  Still, it was like a drawing game, and we had a fun time together.
