  • Let's call this post “Tea as an Art” or the "Art of Tea".
Once I decided to list all aspects of the tea hobby.
🍃 Tea can be collected, like stamps or coins, by different aspects like types, regions, tastes, different effects on the body.
🍃 Tea can be considered as a financial instrument and investment, especially if you understand about storage. For example, you can buy a 100-year-old puer at the auction, for a million or two dollars. 😁
🍃 You can collect teapots or engage in pottery to please the tea business - this is, you must agree, a separate universe.
🍃 You can study the art of brewing tea (gong fu cha) and hold tea ceremonies.
.
What did I forget?

🍵 日本綠茶配沙琪瑪
🍵 喝茶是一種境界,喝茶的時候什麼也不要想、什麼也不要說,連喝茶的心都不要有。全身心貫注在茶上,一口一口慢慢品茗,不要在意茶味的甘苦,你的心越清淨,喝出來的茶越清香甘爽。由是可知,喝茶其實就是在品味生活。

🍵 Japanese Green Tea with Soft Flour Cake
🍵 Drinking tea is a realm. During it, don't think or say anything. Dedicate your whole self to the tea, sip it bit by bit. Do not care about the sweetness and bitterness or the tea. The clearer your heart is, the clearer the tea will be. Drinking tea is actually tasting life.

  • A visual and mental break from lace, lingerie, all things frou frou. ⠀
⠀
I leave you with an introduction to Orwell’s (controversial) essay on how to brew the perfect cup of tea (No tea bags! No sugar!). .
.
.
Read it here: https://orwell.ru/library/articles/tea/english/e_tea
⠀
"A Nice Cup of Tea" is an essay by English author George Orwell, first published in the London Evening Standard on 12 January 1946.[1] It is a discussion of the craft of making a cup of tea, including the line: "Here are my own eleven rules, every one of which I regard as golden."[2][3]⠀
⠀
Orwell wrote that "tea is one of the mainstays of civilisation in this country and causes violent disputes over how it should be made", and his rules cover such matters as the best shape for a teacup, the advisability of using water that is still boiling, and his preference for very strong tea.[2] He also considers what he calls "one of the most controversial points of all" – whether to put tea in the cup first and add the milk after, or the other way around, acknowledging, "indeed in every family in Britain there are probably two schools of thought on the subject".[3] Orwell says tea should be poured first because "one can exactly regulate the amount of milk whereas one is liable to put in too much milk if one does it the other way round".[4] "I maintain that my own argument is unanswerable", he writes.⠀

  • After two weeks of unintentional hiatus, I’ve published a new episode on my podcast this morning. This one is about tea. I'm talking to Monica Griesbaum @windyhollow_  in Scotland all about how she lives and works in dialogue with nature through her beautiful relationship with tea and natural farming.

Monica generously shares her knowledge and experience about tea growing and tea making. She learnt traditional tea making techniques in Taiwan and took that back to Scotland with her, where she started her own tea farm growing her tea plants from seeds. Monica has a great respect for nature and the ecosystem in her farm and places a big emphasis on only using natural farming technique. She also tells us about organic and biodynamic farming and her passion to care for all living things.

In this episode Monica gives some great advice to those wishing to embark on their own tea journey and encourages us all to be open and keep learning.
.
In this photo you can see me with Monica holding a tray of freshly rolled green tea leaves we gathered together. This photo was taken of us in July when I went to stay with her during my art residency working with her tea leaves.
.
In December we are holding our second event in the Bronze Tea Leaf tour series. This one will be in Edinburgh @eteaket on the 17th of December. If you wish to meet us in person, hear more about our collaborative project and see the bronze tea leaves in the flesh, come to one of our upcoming events.
.
Hope you will enjoy this new podcast episode!

  • #利園一會【泡茶,為生活注入儀式感】
.
《小王子》裏的狐狸曾說「儀式感就是使某一天與其他日子不同,使某一時刻與其他時刻不同。」生存與生活的分別,大概就是後者多了一點儀式感。要數生活中具儀式感的事,必少不了喝茶。從學會品嚐茶的味道層次,到了解造茶的藝術,甚或對一件造工精細的茶具的由衷欣賞等,茶就宛如一個甫踏進去就找不到盡頭的空靈之境,一旦愛上,就永遠只想追求更多。
.
前陣子訪問過 #BasaoTea 的Oliver,他說在香港造茶的圈子很小,與其說是競爭對手,不如說是惺惺相惜的知音人。今天我們便找來了其中一位知音人Alky,跟我們分享他與茶的緣份。「中學畢業後,一次跟家人往一所體面的中菜館吃飯,偶然喝了一杯跟平日茶樓味道不同的茶,便觸發起我對茶的好奇,開始流連茶莊及茶館等地方。後來也陸續報讀了不同的茶藝班,並考取了評茶員的資歷。」Alky回想道。
.
現時,Alky已擁有自己的茶品牌,也成為了不少餐廳或cafe的固定供應商。「以往若要品嚐到高質素的茶,往往要到消費較高的茶館。我們則希望大家既可品嚐到嚴選精製的茶,同時讓品茶不至於成為奢侈的興趣,故我們率先研製的也是較易於市場普及的樽裝冷泡茶。」他續說。至於現時合作的餐廳,有的亦位於利園區,主要也是自成一格、用心追求品質的小店。
.
從Alky的談吐舉止中,不難看出他是一個很注重美感與品質的人,想必對品茶也有很高的準則吧?惟他卻笑言因自己修讀Fine Arts出身,習慣了所有東西也沒有單一定義,故他看品茶也沒有一個標準答案,「聽人家分享品茶準則,倒不如隨性一點,遵從自己的心情與喜好吧。每人都有自己專屬的情感連繫,如小時候婆婆給你沖過一壺鐵觀音,自此你特別喜愛它也沒甚麼不可,有時非得要別人來告訴你哪些才是價值不菲的上等佳品。而當你開始不滿足於目前,想獲取更高程度的享受時,自然要主動花心機求學問,親自體悟出更多茶的特性,道理就如品酒般。」他分享道。自深造茶藝後,他亦坦言自己少了一點浮躁,多了一份專注,正因造茶者必須培養出細膩的覺察,才能造出一手好茶。
.
茶是一個無止境的課題,要透過品茶培養內在修為,你又願意先花心機了解它更多嗎?

    《小王子》裏的狐狸曾說「儀式感就是使某一天與其他日子不同,使某一時刻與其他時刻不同。」生存與生活的分別,大概就是後者多了一點儀式感。要數生活中具儀式感的事,必少不了喝茶。從學會品嚐茶的味道層次,到了解造茶的藝術,甚或對一件造工精細的茶具的由衷欣賞等,茶就宛如一個甫踏進去就找不到盡頭的空靈之境,一旦愛上,就永遠只想追求更多。
    .
    前陣子訪問過 #BasaoTea 的Oliver,他說在香港造茶的圈子很小,與其說是競爭對手,不如說是惺惺相惜的知音人。今天我們便找來了其中一位知音人Alky,跟我們分享他與茶的緣份。「中學畢業後,一次跟家人往一所體面的中菜館吃飯,偶然喝了一杯跟平日茶樓味道不同的茶,便觸發起我對茶的好奇,開始流連茶莊及茶館等地方。後來也陸續報讀了不同的茶藝班,並考取了評茶員的資歷。」Alky回想道。
    .
    現時,Alky已擁有自己的茶品牌,也成為了不少餐廳或cafe的固定供應商。「以往若要品嚐到高質素的茶,往往要到消費較高的茶館。我們則希望大家既可品嚐到嚴選精製的茶,同時讓品茶不至於成為奢侈的興趣,故我們率先研製的也是較易於市場普及的樽裝冷泡茶。」他續說。至於現時合作的餐廳,有的亦位於利園區,主要也是自成一格、用心追求品質的小店。
    .
    從Alky的談吐舉止中,不難看出他是一個很注重美感與品質的人,想必對品茶也有很高的準則吧?惟他卻笑言因自己修讀Fine Arts出身,習慣了所有東西也沒有單一定義,故他看品茶也沒有一個標準答案,「聽人家分享品茶準則,倒不如隨性一點,遵從自己的心情與喜好吧。每人都有自己專屬的情感連繫,如小時候婆婆給你沖過一壺鐵觀音,自此你特別喜愛它也沒甚麼不可,有時非得要別人來告訴你哪些才是價值不菲的上等佳品。而當你開始不滿足於目前,想獲取更高程度的享受時,自然要主動花心機求學問,親自體悟出更多茶的特性,道理就如品酒般。」他分享道。自深造茶藝後,他亦坦言自己少了一點浮躁,多了一份專注,正因造茶者必須培養出細膩的覺察,才能造出一手好茶。
    .
    茶是一個無止境的課題,要透過品茶培養內在修為,你又願意先花心機了解它更多嗎?
