Japanese Tea Ceremony Etiquette for Guests2

When the host serving the ‘wagashi’ bows to the guest, the guest should bow in return, receive the ‘wagashi’ and then eat it. The host will say ”okashi o douzo” (“please eat the sweets”). When you bow in return, say ”okashi o choudai itashimasu” (“I’m receiving the sweets”), then you may start eating.
