Teapot no. 21 - Takis at Seven Cups
Pencil and watercolor in a Moleskine watercolor journal.
I sketched this in pencil while at Seven Cups Tea House in Tucson with Takis (pictured) and his grandpa hialoakapua yesterday afternoon over a pot of tea. Today I watercolored the color. The tea we are drinking here is "Meng Ding Cui Zhu Green Bamboo 2007", a rare green tea which is certified organic. Meng Ding Cui Zhu Green Bamboo is a first flush tea from this year's spring harvest. It was brought back in suitcases from China last week with lots of other fresh teas by the folks who run Seven Cups Tea House.
Here's a photo of Takis that Ross (hialoakapua) took at Seven Cups.
