Suitable moments for drinking tea…

From the Chinese Tea Classic Ch’a-su


When we are interrupted while contemplating

During a good conversation deep into the night

When there is a light soft drizzle

With agreeable friends

When the children are at school

In a bamboo grove on a spring evening

Under unusual rocks.


Unsuitable moments:

At the theatre

While opening letters

When the children are not at school

In torrential rain.


To be avoided when drinking tea:

Sullen servants

Bad waters

Money worries

Large gatherings


To be avoided at all costs:

Shrieking children

Squabbling women

Garrulous people

Noisy streets.
