Tea masters

2013-06-04 11:32:38



A "tea master" is someone who makes, boils, infuses and serves tea, in other words, a server in a tea house. You can't take the term too literally. It doesn't mean an accomplished master in the tea trade or a master's degree holder in the science of tea. In a teahouse, as soon as you take your seat, a tea master will come to you, holding a shining bronze kettle and deftly putting the white set of cups on the table in front of you. Then, he'll raise the kettle and pour water into the tea cup from a height of over one chi.
