What drive you into the world of tea?
What do you want to benefit from tea drinking?
You think you a lot but exactly how much do you really know about yourself?
Once met a very presentable couple walked into a tea shop, the lady said she can’t live a day without tea. “Wah” when I heard this statement. after smelling different tea caddies in the tea shop she eventually chose an aromatic additive blending tea. “Is that way she manage her health and live?” I can’t help to ask this question.
Chinese culture has very long history of “Yang Sheng 《養生， Health Cultivation》”. The most significant representative of LaoZi （老子） Daoism wisdom, ZhuangZi （莊子）wrote in the chaper of 〈Yang Sheng Zhu〉(養生主Mastering Yang Sheng)， ZhuangZi mentioned the importance of following the Nature, not to be driven by feeling or emotion, and not to be blocked by external attractions.
The Dao (meaning Way) is to follow the rationality in the natural Yin-Yang balance and adapt to tge change.
Either drinking, eating or living, how well you are able to listen to your body, know how to adapt to changes by understanding the rationality behind every detail?
