Origin of tea ceremony
The tea ceremony is a ritual that originated in China. According to this ritual, tea is not just a simple drink, but something sacred and spiritual. This is why the tea ceremony must follow very precise rules and everything involved in tea making must comply with those rules.
In the Far East, the consumption of tea spread centuries earlier than in Europe. Allegedly, the tea ceremony was born in Buddhist monasteries where Buddhist monks drank tea to stay awake during the long hour of meditation and to reach their inner self. For Buddhist monks, the tea ceremony was a direct link to the spiritual dimension.
In the second half of the Seventeenth century, tea crossed the ocean to reach England. At the beginning, it was used as a medication, but then became very popular among all social classes as a drink. The only difference was that lower classes drank tea at evening meals, while upper classes enjoyed it served in fancy china cups and together with pastries and sandwiches, mainly around five in the afternoon. Thus the tea ritual became a status symbol.
Over the centuries, tea has lost the status of exclusive drink for upper classes to become a beverage enjoyed all over the world by anybody wishing to relax or share a moment with friends and family. Of course, the nicer the teacup, the nicer the moment…
Being aware of that, Hermès devotes special attention to creating luxury cups and teapots, always stylish and refined, in various designs and colours to satisfy everybody’s tastes.
