Tea culture is a kind of "intermediary" culture, which takes tea as a carrier and aims to reflect the traditional ideology, morality and humanistic spirit of eastern countries, including tea etiquette, customs, tea law, tea rules, tea techniques, tea art, historical allusions, folklore, literature and art, lyrics and songs. Tea culture is a "comprehensive" culture, involving many cultural fields such as architecture, music, dance, painting, drama, clothing, diet, medicine, etc.
The tea ceremony culture originated in China and was introduced to Japan and Korea during the Southern Song Dynasty, but declined in China during the Yuan Dynasty. Nowadays, tea ceremony culture has become popular and developed in Japan, becoming a typical representative of world tea ceremony culture.
Tea ceremony is the core of tea culture, a specific process of tea practice, and also a process of self-improvement and self-awareness of tea people. The process of tea people becoming enlightened through drinking is called the tea ceremony. Or simply put, the consciousness of the drinker towards tea is called the tea ceremony. From this, it can be seen that the tea ceremony belongs to the category of practice and practice to a large extent. It is necessary to not only recognize in the "theory", but also to practice in the "matter", rather than just stay at the level of cognition or research.
