茶水人生 A Life in Tea

Posted by CRM . on

文 By: 蕭慧娟 Siow Fei-Chuan


喝茶是要學習的,這說法似乎很理所當然,不學習茶藝,有無不妥?沒有!不學茶藝,不習茶道,一點損失也沒有!

因不知,茶如水,張口即喝,百茶皆一毛,千香同一味,如此的心無掛念,也是一福。

因無求,茶器統統等同“砂煲甕甑”,可泡可飲,煞是得心應手,隨心之所欲。

如此喝茶,輕鬆有餘,感受不足,雖無所失,亦無所得,不會虛度人生的況味。

茶不是什麼寶,卻絶非平凡物。

唐朝出了個陸羽,一出生就被棄置河流,漂流到寺廟,被和尚哺養教育。一生只為茶,寫了部《茶經》,以10個章節論茶評茶,今人尚無法超越其論說範疇。一介孤兒,因認真對茶,成就了非凡的一生,並尊為“茶聖”,萬古流芳。

陸羽終生漂泊,卻如茶葉從中舒展,載浮載沉,始終芳香撲鼻。

再沒有陸羽了,茶經也已成典,正是時候好好喝杯茶。喝細些,心中有所得,此生便不同。

不學茶,真的一點損失也沒有!


The way to drink tea needs to be learned. This statement sounds natural, but really, is it alright to not learn tea art? Of course! It is absolutely fine to enjoy tea without knowing anything about tea art or tea ceremony.

For him who has no knowledge on tea, it is only a drink, plain like water, easily grabbed. All types taste the same, all fragrances smell the same. Who could say that this innocence isn’t a kind of happiness?

For him who asks nothing from tea, all tea-ware are no different from normal cookware, nothing more than tools that come in handy when needed.

Maybe it is time for us to drink and only drink. Less feelings and interpretations, much more relaxed. There are no regrets, nothing to lose, and nothing to expect. It is a choice to let life be.

Tea might not be a treasure, but it is definitely no ordinary item.

During the Tang Dynasty, there was a man called Lu Yu. When Lu Yu was born, he was abandoned into a river. He drifted to a temple and was adopted by a monk. This orphan who then dedicated his whole life to tea wrote The Classic of Tea(chajing), a ten-chapter monumental book about tea of which scale has never been exceeded. His effort and dedication has transformed him from an ordinary orphan to a great man remembered in history, and his contribution to Chinese tea culture has earned him the title the Sage of Tea.

Lu Yu drifted about throughout his life, like a tea leaf stretching, dancing with elegance. Sinking and rising in the tides of life, the fragrance stayed the same.

There is no more Lu Yu, and the classic remains a classic. It is time for us to sit down and have a cup of tea, this time one sip at a time, and let the taste sink in.

It really is okay not to learn about tea, just taste it!
