It's the ceremony that makes the tea tastes better.

I don't disagree with that.

I'm not an autistic weeb, but I appreciate a certain level of ceremony around the preparation and consumption of my meals.

The only ceremonial action I've ever taken was to leave the innards of my white tail buck on the ground for the forest creatures to eat.

Otherwise: Hungry = eat

They must have been so fucking bored on that resource deprived island.

Just as silly as the shit the rich did to differentiate themselves from the poor in the west, really. Muh cutlery and ruffled clothes etc.

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.

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.

What are you even implying.

This must be bait. Really, what is the implication? What's up with Texas?
>>
>>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.

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.

Shit's cool, yo, just like you.

Fuck chadō, Gong fu cha all the way!

7g in 150ml for 10 seconds, THAT's what make tea tastes better.

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.

I'm disappointed in you, /ck/. For a board exclusively composed of drink threads you could at least know some drink-related culture.

>Seems too pretencious
You should look up the definition (and spelling) of that word because I really dont think you know what it means
