"Tea is always a ceremony. For this reason, it must be approached in a certain way. Whether you're preparing a cup of tea simply because you're tired and need a lift or planning a tea party in the garden, there are certain things that are constants. The surroundings of the tea ceremony are almost as important as the tea itself."
