Cha Hua Dao The way of arranging tea flowers

#TodaysTea#今天的茶 – A tiny Bonsai Tree for the tea table.

A flower arrangement, (#chāhuā) or a small, but special plant, helps to bring life and loveliness to the table, and enhances the enjoyment of true tea.

I had already picked out another plant at the Antique Flower Market in Shanghai, but in doingI had walked three times past a small shop run by an old Chinese gentleman, soI went in to have a look and discovered this little #Bonsai Tree. So happy I did. I hope it likes Tea?

The Art or Way of arranging flower decorations and plants for the Tea Table or Tea Room is called Cha Hua Dao. Cha is Tea, Hua is Flower, and Dao is the Way.
