Water must be boiled to the perfect temperature; unlike coffee beans tealeaves are delicate and can easily burn

Smell, see, hear, touch, taste the tea

Eat during tea service to prevent a sore stomach: avoid heavy foods like meat and mango. Candy and small mandarin oranges are a good choice

Empty the teacup in 3 sips

Tap your three fingers on the counter as a sign of thanks to the host

No sneezing, smoking or burning of incense during tea service; tealeaves easily absorb the flavours around them
