Heating a Nerikoh ball (Japanese Incense) on charcoal. The strong projection of aroma is enough to scent a small room and create a nice ambience for a tea session. A nice complement to the appreciation of age tea.
Tip: Flatten the Nerikoh ball on the mica plate creates more surface area to heat contact and prevents the ball from rolling freely across. Allow a layer of ash to form on the charcoal before placing the mica plate and incense. This helps to buffer the heat and prevents burning and strong acrid smoke.
