Glamour Of Tea

As far as a quite number of people are concerned, drinking tea is a very elegant and interesting thing. The west has coffee, but in their films, this kind of bitter beverage seems to have no high status. It is said that Balzac has drunk 50000 cups of coffee in his lifetime, as a result it became the important reason for his early death. If he drunk tea, maybe we can see more The Human Comedy.

However, if Balzac drunk tea instead of coffee - maybe no one earnestly counted the cups of tea he drunk. In Chinese history, there are many people addicted to tea, but it seems that no one Quantify their likes, and count how many cups; of tea one certain people has drunk in his lifetime, how many tons of tea he has made and how many of river, lake, fountain and slush he has burned……our instinct has turned down this sort of counting.

Tea is different from any other beverage on earth, its form can be once more commercialized, but its spirit shall te independent from any figure, formula and chart. To some extent, tea and a series of culture system related with tea is one of the most precious spiritual supports among the hearts of Chinese people. Even in such a swift, fussing and fun of smoke times, we secretly expect from the bottom of our hearts that a leaf can be found anywhere in such a big world, the rather that it is a so larruping leaf.

Charming Of Tea Plantation
The Emotion Of Chinese Traditional Painting

Full of Blanks and Profound Artistic Conception (subtitle)
A wide area of planting farmland itself is a kind of scenery. Terrace in the South China, the cole fields in Qinghai province and the colorful tulip fields in Holland were all beautiful scenes, which made them qualified to be printed on postcards. However, I always wonder that tea plantation seldom got the same treatment, let alone the scene when the seasons for picking tea.

A wide area of planting farmland itself is a kind of scenery. Terrace in the South China, the cole fields in Qinghai province and the colorful tulip fields in Holland were all beautiful scenes, which made them qualified to be printed on postcards. However, I always wonder that tea plantation seldom got the same treatment, let alone the scene when the seasons for picking tea.

Tea plantations had the same exuberance of foliage, rolled and strewed at random along hillside, and every branch emanated faint scent. No matter perspective, close shot or feature, it should be ideal picture. What wrong with directors around the world? They fed neglected this elegant scenery for many years. The most typical example was no more than the larg-scale color film Third Sister Liu shot in 1960s. There were tea mountain, tea plantation and trippingly going forward and backward tea picking women. However, the background of the film was in Guangxi, so most of scenery picture were turned to Guilin landscape.

Though the scenery of tea plantations were usually shadowed by natural landscapes, they after all were at the same space time. Even if it was only ornament, it has its own traits, and this was different from any other thing. Charming of tea plantation is the emotion of Chinese traditional painting with full of blanks and profound artistic conception. Nowadays, though tea has become world wide beverage, but its charming is still unique. Think a lot, epic film Gandhi emerges before my eyes; under the burning sunshine, a train with fully loaded refugees passed through tea plantations one after another, the atmosphere was compelling and desperate.

Honey is too greasy Wine is too violent Tea is the best choice

In the 1970s and 1980s, people saw the films made by our own, the vessels that people usually used to drink tea were porcelain cups of column form, the upside of which had a word "奖" Others used left empty bottle after moping up fruit can. But in order to better handle, a heat insulation net cover must be added at the outside of the bottle - thousands of ideas had presented on the cover. After grasping the plastic net cover for a long time, there would be thin lines in the palms. Vertically and horizontally crossed lines just liked the unpredictable foreordination added to our daily life.

Nowadays, from emotion to tea bag, anything is fast dissolving. One of few exceptions was Zhao Wei in the film of Green Tea, Even at the time of meeting her boyfriend, she could leisurely looked at tea in the glass tea cup until it slowly extends.

In fact, it is said that A hedge between keeps friendship green - but if we really gain a bowl of water from well, this means not wateriness, but loneliness. Intimate friends always need something worthy of recalling. Honey is too greasy, and wine is too violent, so tea is the best choice.

It is often confusing me how wine exceed tea in the rank of beverages among m Chinese films, and become the leading actor in camera lens. Good men drink, Baddies drink; drink when exultation, drink when abjection;drink when repaying an obligation, drink when seeking revenge. Even when the flagon is empty, people will raise teacup, probably hypocritically added, taking tea as the substitute of wine mood affectation.

Let alone they will take tea as sober-up soup when they drink too much and get drunk.

Where there are places, there are rivers and lakes;
Where there are rivers and lakes, there are sceneries.
Where there are sceneries, there is tea.

Doctor Zhivago, directed by David Lean, told the tribulation of Russian people in the first half of 20 century. In a world of ice and snow, the main actor and actress found an ice-sealed house, and made a fire, then steeped a kettle of tea, the fragrance of tea filled with the house. This was the only comfort the film had brought to us

The difference between birch woods and lawn may be best showed the difference between Russian-style tea and British-style tea. Just like the noble actors, in the film of Gosford Park and The Importance of Being Earnest. Besides the ! dazzling silver vessel, newly baked little bread was full of fragrance, Bounty tea table had been set at the side of lawn, or at a distance from huge window falling to the ground, The most ideal scene should be the open air tea party in film of Sense and Sensibility. Gentlemen and gentlewomen in Victoria times set the get-together site on the high hills. Looking forward, it seemed that the! horizon was under the sole - this should be the excellent portrait of Great Britain during that period of times. They sat on those three small islands, but they set their flag in the place where the sunshine reached. The only difference was that the empire had collapsed for many years, but the tea had existed……

It is difficult for me to predict: as far as crazy Latin people is concerned, they will at last how to accept the leaf that come from the other side of Pacific Ocean, no matter the darkness and blooding in City of God, or inextricable family enmity in Abril Desperado, I am very hard to connect those with the fragrance of tea. Perhaps, at last those two will just like the cocktail tea of Hawaii, one half is wine, .another half is tea, liquid blends together, but flavor is totally different.
