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

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 and a park called Chaoyang Tea Park in this area. 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.
