A friend invited me to have tea and showed me how to perform a fancy tea ceremony which is a special skill that most people don’t know how to do. It is necessary to have a perfect teapot, cups, brewing tray, tea, and water. First you warm the water, next everyone has to take time to appreciate the tea, then there is a long process for actually preparing the tea, and finally the tea is drunk. The ceremony is about art, elegance, and harmony and focuses on the taste and smell of the tea.
