Chinese people can live without Coca Cola and milk, but tea is absolutely indispensable. With it holding such an important value, it should come as no surprise that the Chinese actually have a Tea Ceremony.
Seat: Nowadays, few people know the honor and inferiority implied by a guest’s seat placement, but this principle should be followed: facing the host, the seat on the left hand side of the host is the honor! From there the ranking rotates clockwise, from honor to humility, with the seat on the right hand side of the host being last.
1.The tea set should be clean.
2. The amount of tea should be appropriate: When pouring the tea, it is not advisable to pour too much or too little.
3. Serving tea appropriately: According to the traditional custom of the Chinese people, as long as the two hands are not disabled, the tea is served to the guests with both hands.
4. Add tea on time
One must be sure to take note of the status of their guest’s tea and refill at the appropriate time.
5. Guests should not frown when drinking tea. This is a warning to the host. If the host finds the guest frowning, he will think that the guest does not like the tea which has been offered.
