Man Setting Tea Leaves In Cup

Man setting tea leaves in cup

The owner of a tea shop was setting tea leaves in the cup

Shot at Datong District in Taipei, Taiwan.

Came to another tea shop again. There were many tea shops especially in the area where I was. I heard this area was the former tea wholesaler street. For that reason, there were still many tea shops here. So it was a nice area to hop tea shops. The atmosphere of the shop varied. Some shops looked like storage, some shops were upscale-looking.

This shop was the latter moderately. The place to service was built in the back of the shop. As soon as I entered the shop, I was escorted into the place. And the owner, who could speak Japanese a little, started to brew tea to sample. Maybe he had free time. He served me many cups of tea while talking about tea.

On the other side of him, a big calligraphic work written in Chinese was hung on the wall. I thought if I were cultivated, I could read the sentences.
