Yesterday, some students, Mike and I went to Teaism Café, which is a Japanese restaurant. I ordered beef ochazuke (boiled rice with tea poured on it; simple meal) and Japanese sweet tea. Before ordering, I thought Japanese tea is not sweet but I ordered and it tasted so bad, the worst tea I’ve ever drunken!!!! But ochazuke was so good!! But it was a little Americanized. At the store, there are some Koi (carp). The koi were beautiful, some are white, some are gold….. In Japan, there are many koi, so when I saw the koi, I remembered Japan.
