Influence in Japanese Tea
In Japan, tea has become a influence throughout the centuries.
As the Japanese monks traveled to China and had brought tea
back with them, the monks brought tea back with them,
to propagate the tea to grow on the temple.
An ancient Zen priest in the period of 1141—1215 created
the tea drinking custom (Cha-no-yu) for Japan.
A whole culture was created around the Cha-no-yu, tea ceremony. This tea ceremony interested the wealthy
and this would entice this culture of the Cha-no-yu ceremony.
It was several years later that having a cup a tea now
has become a daily beverage.
“Ocha to jo wa koigoi to.”
(Tea and the heart are better strong and deep)
