Tea Ceremony by Taoist Tea Master - China 中国茶道
A comprehensive look at a Chinese tea ceremony with Su Mengli at the San Qinghong Tea House, located at the base of Sangqingshan Mountain, China.
Tea Master Su Mengli "Miss Sue" teaches us about the delights, the symbolism and cultural importance of tea in China.
Tea has had a major influence on the development of Chinese culture, and Chinese traditional culture is closely connected with Chinese tea.
Tea is often associated with literature, arts, and philosophy and is closely connected with Taoism, Buddhism and Confucianism. Roughly since the Tang Dynasty, drinking tea has been an essential part of self-cultivation. Chinese Chan (similar to Japanese Zen) philosophy is also linked with drinking tea.
