Take a deep breath; mindfully pour hot water into the tea pot. As tea leaves uncurl one by one, fragrance of tea fills the atmosphere. Tea Chan is an indispensable part of ChineseCulture, it integrates drinking tea with meditation. Just as tea leaves will not be able to release fragrance without boiling water, the fragrance of our lives arises from frustrations and difficulties. Tea Chan allows us to have a moment with ourselves and hence a peace of mind.
