Thirty-nine people attended the Asian Tea program at the Little Egg Harbor branch Saturday, May 2nd. While guests tasted Japanese sweets using chop sticks [nori cookies, sesame bars, sour apple candies, sugar glazed rice cookies and mochi], costumed presenter Judith Krall Russo described a Japanese tea ceremony where matcha tea was heated, whisked, then served to guests in disposable espresso cups. A Chinese tea ceremony followed with two types of tea and almond pocky, or fortune cookies, for tasting.

Thanks to the Friends of the Little Egg Harbor branch for providing the program and refreshments from the Asian Supermarket in Pleasantville, to SerendipiTea for the Oolong and Genmachi teas, Habitat for Humanity for the loan of tea cups and pots, Lisa Ferrara’s TAB young adults for the butterfly origami at each place setting, and Pinelands Regional Junior High School students for the book display cranes in nests and flowers in boats origami.

Patrons were pleased with the program, taste testing, book display and chance to exchange experiences. At least six adults joined the Friends!
