The Tao of Tea is the path of tea appreciation. It is an art of living about brewing and drinking tea. With tea as the medium, the Tao of Tea is an etiquette of everyday living, as well as, a way of life, cultivating moral character through tea. Tea can purify and clear our minds, purging distracting thoughts; it is interlinked to the Eastern philosophy of promoting “tranquility, simplicity, and contentment” and is also in line with Taoism's idea of “introspective practice”. The core of tea culture lies in the spirit of the Tao of Tea while “confluence of tea and Zen” is considered as the highest realm of it.

Tea is a part of our daily life and the Tao of Tea, the path of tea appreciation, cannot exist seclusively. A cup of tea, either with many guests or enjoyed alone, can calm and purify our mind and lead us into the world of Zen.
