Shiguretei Tea House 4 – Sweets before tea

Before being served your tea, you’ll first receive a small confection to enjoy beforehand (sometimes they serve both at the same time, in which case you simply eat the sweet first). Propper etiquette dictates that you pick up the sweet (plate or paper and all) with your right hand, place it in the palm of your left hand, then use the provided stick to divide it up into equal sections, only after which you can then skewer and eat each piece.

I'm a 29 (now 31) year-old former desk jockey who is now making my way around the world, experiencing all of the sights, sounds, tastes, people, and culture that the world has to offer.
