茶人 – Teaist/ Tea People
There are two explanations for tea people, one is the person who is good at tea ceremony, the other is the person who collects or makes tea. It should also be broader, because there are always different views on what is the tea ceremony and whether it is necessary for tea to rise to the level of Dao. People who love tea and cherish tea, even if they are not proficient in it, can be regarded as tea people.
The etiquette of Confucianism, the cultivation of Buddhism and the leisure of Taoism are fully reflected in the atmosphere of tea. Among Confucianism, Buddhism and Taoism, the feeling of leisure is the most profound. Therefore, many hermits have the habit of loving tea, which is beyond the ordinary beverage.
