Holding a tea ceremony in China

The other water is already suitable for brewing the tea that is being consumed.
Tea is brewed very quickly. It doesn’t take more than one minute to brew it. After that, tea is poured into special bowls. Each guest from his bowl inhales a couple of teas, slowly drinking them, focusing on his thoughts.
The tea leaves can be brewed several times. Of course, the brewing becomes weaker each time, but the tea acquires new flavours and flavours. The main thing is that the water that is poured into the tea is not too much. After all, in China it is believed that moderation leads to wealth, and abundance leads to trouble.
It’s not accepted to talk to each other during the whole action. You can only speak and address the tea itself and the god of the tea ceremony. His images are an obligatory attribute of the action, which is placed next to the tea equipment.
A tea ceremony is a process that helps a person to find inner peace, tranquillity and tranquility. Everyone who wants to relax, to know himself should visit it.
