Do you tea lovers likes Chinese / oriental art / calligraphy along with your tea cultures?

by Tstudio » Jun 15th 19 2:32 pm

Hi ,
I have curious about, if someone likes, appreciate about making tea, drink tea , do you likes with some oriental arts as well ? Like brush painting, calligraphy, Japanese sumi-e? Any decorate with your tea rooms?

For my starting point of drinking tea, its about I learn chinese art, calligraphy , at about college period, and the Pu-er tea is the first tea we appreciate and started to know at that moment, I am not making tea, just joined my teacher and some friends at that time, we just enjoy tea and chatting only. There is simply we finished it and buy , not keeping tea at that time, until those Pu-er we likes getting higher prices, so started to buy them more, because we used to drink them. But then after is more and more popular in town until now.

Back to my point... do anybody likes to get a piece of artwork written or drawn in decorate their tea corner ? Some phrase or words , yes in Chinese words, or poems to gives a touch with tea drink??? Because I will gives my tea room with poems, also I write them , wonder if any of u likes some tea poems ?.........

Hey Tstudio! - What a great topic - do you have some artwork already? If so can you share some photos? Tea poems sound like an intriguing idea - have you written one you'd be willing to share with us?

In China, there's a lot of overlap of interest in tea and calligraphy. I think it's harder in the West, because you can fully appreciate calligraphy if you can read Chinese. If you can, then you understand the art of calligraphy better. I think in the West, I can imagine one enjoy tea with other kind of arts, such as paintings and indeed also poems.

Hello, thanks for feedback , yes in fact it is true about if someone knows their( the chinese words) meanings well, it did help for understanding .
And because of this point , some other forms of calligraphy art was created too, they are out of normal Chinese words, even it only we can see them by line , forms, abstract . It is another category as well. And been the critical topics about chinese calligraphy too. Maybe its quite far with it.. just hope to share some views.
As you see, If Chinese words itself , it couldn't be an art. If we type a word , we cannot see them as art.
That's give questions , what is the arts means.... why we need arts? Did we need arts...

Tea , as a drink , also becomes as an art forms, those rituals , process, is beautiful. But, this is far not the same as ancient 陆羽Luyu those time , I think. We only can enjoy nowadays tea, and welcome the future , or create one....
