Egoism and self-confidence are very similar, often the difference is so thin as a see-through rice paper.
The basic theory about tea and how to prepare tea are not the most difficult learning in tea, but willingness, respectful and submissive learning attitude are.
On the journey of tea learning, I remain as a white paper so I can receive all information, but I do not take information for granted, because I like to maintain objective digestion and diagnosis without preconceived ideas, certainly to avoid pre-judgement before I even have a chance to know more.
Learning tea, learning life.
