7 Warm Atmosphere of The Moscow Tea Museum

Warm Atmosphere of The Moscow Tea Museum

Posted on November 29, 2010 by team


Here is a report about one of tea ceremonies in the Moscow Tea Museum. Maria, the “Tea Master” held the ceremony for children – she prepared white tea Bai-Hao-Ing-Chzen according to the Chinese tradition. A tea master must know how to prepare water, must know everything about the 6 kinds of tea, where they grow, how they are gathered and how they can influence people.

A tea maser should also not only make tea – he or she should create the necessary “tea-atmosphere”, in order to immerse people in the “tea-condition” and cause strong emotional experiences.

There are several steps of water heating – each has its own name – “crawfish eyes”, “shrimp eyes”, “fish eyes”, “pearl threads” and “the white key”…

When the water is ready, the master “twists” it and adds tea leaves…

When the bigger part of leaves is at the bottom – it is time to start tea drinking.
