>>7259164 This. I would love to attend a traditional Japanese tea ceremony. But that would be weeb as fuck. But it interests me in the same way that historical papermaking and printing do. It's the ceremony, the craftsmanship.
>>7259264 I'm just lucky to be as bored as aristocrats were hundreds of years ago. So damn lucky. I get to learn from other people's experiences and spark my own interest constantly with all this free time I have between work and school.
I'm not wasting my time trying to appear more important and trick people into thinking I'm something greater by drinking some goddamn tea at least. We all shit into the same sewer. Old school networking like tea ceremonies is of course going to seem silly to me when modern networking involves drinking beer together and getting to actually know people.
>>7259279 But when you make paper you're actually doing something productive. I've made paper, illustrated a classic story (the boy who painted cats), bound it into a book using a traditional Japanese style, with a hard cover using beautiful Japanese paper as the cover decoration from a specialty import paper shop, and used that book to get a scholarship for college.
That's a productive use of traditional methods and stories. Tea ceremonies seem frivolous and silly in comparison. It's ground high quality tea that needs a lot of whisking.
>Better dress up and act super stoic to preserve my honor while I appreciate the umami notes of this tea >Damn that tea serving girl is hot with that modest dress and hair I'd marry that bitch for a political alliance >mother fucking tea ceremony
>>7259312 I can get that. It's just not you. I still dig the ceremony though. It's also why, even though I'm an atheist, I'm still attracted to traditional religion. Yeah, you're not producing anything, but shit's cool yo.
>>7259374 That's legit. I like traditional folk tales legends and lore for the same reasons. I'll learn about a legend from a particular area, read up on that regions people, then cook their tastiest sounding traditional food while reading up on them with my phone.
>>7258086 Seems too pretencious for me to enjoy much, however if I ever get an invitation for something like that I'd be honered to attend.
Honestly I drink a lot of tea at home, and I am very picky about what and how I make it..... but if my boyfriend made me a cup of the worst tea, poured a table spoon of sugar in it, I would still feel it was the best tea of my life... I think this ceremony has more or less the same effect on many people.
