The Ancient Art of Tea on Tea Etiquette:
"One may practice tea possessing full knowledge of the varied tea utensils and their many functions, but without etiquette, is this really practicing tea?
For people, etiquette is a basic element of our being, just as the body and limbs are so vital for the rat to live and function. Without the human element of etiquette what is the use of serving tea? Courtesy, etiquette, and manners, therefore, are all fundamental components of tea practice.”
When making tea, your multiple actions - preparing, steeping, pouring, serving - all possess the indelible mark of your character, personality, moral discipline, and most importantly, your skill in brewing tea. Be self-aware of behavior and execution, both intentional and inadvertent in tea preparation.
