What is a tea ceremony?

A tea ceremony, also known as a tea ritual, is a traditional practice that originated in China and later spread to other parts of East Asia such as Japan, Korea, and Vietnam. The ceremony involves the preparation and presentation of tea, with a focus on creating a tranquil and harmonious environment to enhance the experience.

The ceremony typically involves the use of a tea set, which includes a teapot, tea cups, and other utensils. The tea used in the ceremony is often of high quality, and the preparation process is highly ritualized and precise. The ceremony can be performed alone or with others, and may be used for social, spiritual, or meditative purposes.

In Japan, the tea ceremony is known as "chanoyu" or "sado" and is often associated with the Zen Buddhist tradition. The ceremony is highly formalized and involves specific rules and procedures for the preparation, presentation, and consumption of the tea. In other parts of East Asia, the tea ceremony may have different names and variations in the procedures and practices.
