on average I find more enjoyment alone because I don't like to feel rushed when making tea (even if it's not verbal I can feel the uneasiness and awareness of time that my friends/strangers are feeling). It is hard to get people who don't drink tea often to sit for an hr or two just to enjoy some tea and rest their mind. I am still not masterful enough to quell these feelings in them all the time
But there are great feelings and interconnectedness when everything flows smoothly and easily among all around the table. It's amazing how a session depends so much on everyone there. Find the right people, then a good session is so easy and effortless. I really enjoy brewing for children who enjoy tea. So peaceful and bright, always good vibes all around even if the surroundings are not ideal
Obviously I need work on brewing tea for others.
