Outdoor Green Tea(Cha) Ceremony

These photos were taken about 2 years ago when I went to South Korea. There are 5 tea cups so you could tell that there were 5 of us that joined in this outdoor tea ceremony.

We had some home made rice cake for the desert.

This lady is a Tea instructor and a very good friend.

I and as well as many other Koreans drink green tea not only for the taste, but also to have a quiet moment to focus on the inner being while drinking tea. So drinking tea is not only tasting a flavor, but it also means " thinking the flavor".  I drink to focus on my soul and to clear my mind.
