There is something in the nature of tea that leads us into a world of quiet contemplation of life. 

– Lin Yutang, The Importance of Living

You, Tea, and your thoughts

The quote by Lin Yutang captures the essence of tea in its simplest form. Tea is a drink that has been around for thousands of years, and it has been used for many different purposes. As a social tool, as medicine, or even as a way to relax and get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

The great pleasure in tea comes from the fact that it gives us a chance to sit quietly with only your thoughts to keep us company. It’s an opportunity to slow down and enjoy each other’s company in a way we just can’t do when we’re rushing around our days.

Tea … is a religion of the art of life. 

– Kakuzo Okakura, The Book of Tea

TEa, art & Religion

Kakuzo Okakura, the author of The Book of Tea, was a Japanese philosopher and writer. The Book of Tea describes all aspects of the Japanese tea ceremony. And explains how its rituals blend seamlessly with traditional Japanese life. Okakura believed that tea was a way to connect with the world around you. And about how it could be used as a tool for self-reflection and meditation.

The way we see it, tea is about much more than just drinking something warm to keep you from getting frostbite. It’s about appreciating the moment you’re in. It’s about looking inward and finding peace within yourself. And it’s about building relationships that last for generations. 

It’s a religion because it has its own rituals, which are steeped in history and tradition. It’s an art because it’s something that can be crafted by you and your own hands. You can make it your own. And it’s a way of life because it has such a deep connection to nature. And reminds us to slow down and appreciate what we have around us.

I am in no way interested in immortality, but only in the taste of tea.

– Lu T’ung

Love of Tea

Lu T’ung was a Chinese poet and philosopher known for his great love of tea. And for his belief that the art of drinking tea could lead to spiritual enlightenment. In this quote, he expresses his passion for tea, which he felt was more important than immortality.

A cup of tea is a moment of peace and calm. It’s a moment to reflect, to contemplate life and all its many complexities. Tea helps us relax, to focus on the present moment instead of worrying about what might happen tomorrow or yesterday.

It’s easy to lose sight of this when you’re caught up in the hustle and bustle of life. But it’s so important to recognise that whatever you’re doing right now is all that matters. You have this one moment, and your only job is to make the most of it.
