If you just skip through the paper, remember though there’s a difference between “just” Gongfucha and Chayi, the titular tea arts.

It’s not the regional, utilitarian Gongfucha itself prior to its popularization on a national level that had been influenced by ideas about aesthetics from Japan, but Gongfucha has been imbued with them to become Chayi.

Mr N is a history professor at HKU, so the research behind it is solid.
