Take a moment to breathe and find zanshin. Be present in the moment, connecting fully with your surroundings. Listen to the sounds of the kettle bubbling, the tap of the tea scoop on the bowl. See the vibrant colour of your matcha, and the beauty in the artistry of your whisk and bowl. When using the whisk, feel its weight in your hand. Breathe in the smells. As you take the tea into your mouth, let it wash over your tongue and appreciate the layers of its flavours.
Connect each moment to the next - the mind should always be in flow.
