「四序茶會」乃是天仁茶藝文化基金會前秘書長林易山先生所創制,結合了點茶、焚香、掛畫插花的生活四藝,透過群體參與的茶會形式呈現大自然的圓融律動。
牆上懸掛「四季山水圖」,及「名壺名器名山在,佳茗佳人佳氣生」對聯點出了「四序茶會」的主題精神。茶席和正中央的花香案則鋪以青、赤、白、黑、黃等五色桌巾以呈現「四序遷流,五行變易」。伴隨著悠揚的古琴樂聲中,司香與司茶迎賓入席。司香以香禮敬天地之後,四位司茶分別依冬、春、夏、秋的次序入場,向來賓行花禮後入座,沖泡代表四季的四種茶湯:(春)文山包種、(夏)白毫烏龍、(秋)桂花金萱、(冬)阿里山金萱。司茶依序奉上四道茶湯,讓賓客在品味茶湯的過程中亦品味自然時序的遞嬗輪轉;最後,司茶起身收回賓客手中的茶杯,司香行禮撤香,司茶行花禮後,樂聲停止為茶會劃下完美句點。
