The Second "Maple Fall" Wu-wo Tea Ceremony
1. Arrange seat number marker

A. Good evening, ladies and gentlemen, this conference will hold a Wu-Wo tea ceremony of "the second Maple Fall”at 7:30. Welcome to our vistors. Brewers will serve you tea.

B. Wu-Wo Tea Ceremony is a style of tea ceremony ,developed and perfected in Taiwan. Gather to form a circle to brew tea, then everyone will serve tea. So Wu-Wo Tea Ceremony is a style for everybody brewing、serving, and drinking tea.

C. Now, the conference will arranging seat number markers. Wu-Wo Tea Ceremony will“Gather to form a circle to brew tea”, while participants with their number slip find seats. This is the first spirit“no matter to social status”about Wu-Wo Tea Ceremony. This ceremony estimates about 200 people will take part in. So the seat number marker has two circles.

D. Ladies and gentlemen, we hope everyone is happy together, so the ceremony will brew three rounds, every brew will be severed to you, please don’t leave.

2. Check-In

A.Ladies and gentlemen, the brewers arrival in succession. Wu-wo Tea Ceremony through random process to decide seating. Nobody knows who will be seated adjacent to. This is the spirit“no matter to social status ”and feel at ease under all circumstances.

B. Today, most brewers are second year students from the Tenfu Tea College, of Department of Tea Culture. And have some teacher and first year students, of Department of Tea Culture.

C.The brewers who drawing ended are putting them tea ware.

D.Ladies and gentlemen, please look out the brewers’ tea ware, the method of tea ware's carrying and package. Wu-wo tea ceremony uses simple tea ware, and we carry our own brewing water. Moreover ,please look at all the many kinds of tea ware. This means Wu-wo tea ceremony is not confined to any specific tea ware and brewing manner. This is the second spirit“no distinction of school or region” about Wu-wo tea ceremony.

E.After the tea ware is prepared, brewers can observe others tea ware, and talk about getting together. This“tea ware appreciation and friendship time”about Wu-wo tea ceremony, also can make use of this paragraph of time to take photo as a memento, after begin to brew tea, will not allow having taken photo, need to take photo, only please the people who not participating in brew tea outer the circle. When appreciating the tea ware, if host isn’t present and agree, stipulate that being to be able to not touch.

3. Brewing tea

A.“Tea ware appreciation and friendship time ”at this specified time. The brewers will go back to their seats and brew tea. The progress is written in the “public announcement”. Wu-wo tea ceremony has no director or master of ceremonies, just follow the agreed schedule and practices. This is the third spirit” follow the public rules” about Wu-wo tea ceremony. Everybody to do ceremony and no command. It can express group rhythm and harmony.

B.Begin brewing, the people must be live in the circle . Because people must break the place’s beautiful feeling. The photography must at the outer circle, too. If someone has to needs to take a picture in the circle, please as soon as possible llift.

C.Don’t talk when you're brewing tea. Brewer must be concentrate brewing tea. At time to tea serving ,tea server don’t say“please have some tea”and people that have been served don’t say “thank you”, if two brewers meet, only to bow or smile. Such quiet , can feel the ceremony’s beautiful feeling easily, and feel people and people, people and things, people and land’s interactive relationship.
This is Wu-wo tea ceremony’s another spirit is “cultivate tacit understanding”.

D.Ladies and gentlemen, now, brewers are beginning tea serving. we pour into five cups and go serve to the adjacent three neighbors on the left and you. The last cup ,we reserve and enjoy our self. This is a rule “serving tea in the same direction” about Wu-wo tea ceremony. Everyone serve tea to left, but have the tea from right, means “without intentions”. We hope everyone remember“no reward is expected”. This is one of spirits about Wu-wo tea ceremony.

E.Everyone maybe has different teas, because different people can bring tea. Wu-wo tea ceremony hopes everyone can accept and appreciate different teas, no bias. If bias is heavy, maybe exclude lucks, because you don’t like something isn’t necessarily a bad thing. “no bias”is one of the spirits about Wu-wo tea ceremony.

F.Maybe these five cups of tea are not very good, maybe one cup are bitter and astringent. By now the brewers should reflect themselves, whether brew broken the tea. “brew good tea”is the basic request on tea cultivation. If not, you must say sorry for tea. So “concentrate and improve”will become the spirit about Wu-wo tea ceremony.
G.Ladies and gentlemen, you can have many kinds of tea, please don’t throw the cup, because the second and the third tea will be serve for you.
H.the second tea, brewers take the tea pitcher and serve to the adjacent three neighbors on the left and spectators, too.

I.the serving tea is not only left side, but also right side. When public announcement makes rules, we have to follow it, if not, just start on the left side.
J. The " maple fall Wu-wo tea ceremony" was organized by teacher Steven in 2008, The Multilanguage Tea Gathering was conducted to promote international tea culture and to utilize the skills obtained by the Specialized English course. Next year we will be held the third ceremony, welcome to take part in.

K. Now, this is the third and last tea. Ladies and gentlemen, may be different people serve different tea to you. Tea ceremony has a lovely spirit:: brew tea give to others drink , even if unknown people. The spirit in Wu-wo tea ceremony is more clear .

L. Ladies and gentlemen, please have your tea slowly, wait a minute, the servers can collect your cup when pack the tea ware. We don’t cause your any trouble, also don’t cause any pollution environment.

4. Post tea drinking activity

第二届“枫林之夜”( Maple Fall)无我茶会
1.安置号码牌
a.各位来宾,本会场将于19时30分举办一场第二届“枫林之夜”无我茶会(Wu-wo tea ceremony),欢迎各位来宾参加。会中每位泡茶者都将奉茶给各位来宾。
b.无我茶会是由台湾发起的一种茶会方式,大家自备茶具围成一圈泡茶,泡完茶每人都要起来奉茶,因此每个人都可以喝到别人泡的茶。所以说无我茶会是人人泡茶人人奉茶,人人喝茶的一种茶会方式。
c.现在会场正在安置号码牌,无我茶会是围成一圈泡茶,等一下与会者就凭抽到的号码就坐。这是无我茶会的第一个精神<无尊卑之分>。本次无我茶会预计有两百人参加,所以号码牌要围成两圈。
d.各位来宾,为能大家同乐,本次无我茶会将泡茶三道,每道茶都会奉给参观的来宾,请大家不要离开,等一下就可以喝到参加泡茶的人自己带来的各种茶。
2.报到
a.各位来宾,现在参加泡茶的人已陆续到来。无我茶会是以抽签决定座位,谁会坐谁的旁边都不知道,这是茶道的一种精神“无尊卑之分”,而且随遇而安。
b.今天参加‘枫林之夜无我茶会’的主要是天福茶学院茶文化系大二的茶友,同时也有茶文化系各位老师和大一的同学。
c.抽完签的茶友找到座位,把茶具摆设出来。
d.各位来宾请注意他们所准备的茶器以及携带,包装的方法。无我茶会是使用简便的茶器,热水也是用保温瓶带着来。另外也请大家留意,每人准备的茶器各有不同,这表示无我茶会所用的茶器及泡茶法是不拘的,这也是无我茶会第二个精神:无地域与流派之分。
e.将茶具准备妥当后,可以起来看看别人带来的茶器,并相互问候,交谈,这是无我茶会前半段安排的<茶具观摩与联谊>的时间,也可以利用这段时间拍照留念,等开始泡茶后,就不准起来拍照了,要拍照只有请不参与泡茶的人在圈外进行。欣赏茶器时,如果不是主人在场,并征得同意,规定是不能触摸的。
3.泡茶
a.<茶器观摩与联谊>到了规定的时间,就要自动回到自己座位,开始泡茶。这个进度都写在发给参加者的<公告事项>内,无我茶会进行间是不设指挥与司仪的,一切都依事先的约定进行,这是无我茶会的第三项精神<遵守公共约定>。一群人进行茶会,没有人指挥,可以让大家体认群体律动之美。
来宾们,再过十分钟就要开始泡茶,请圈内的人离开,以免影响泡茶者泡茶。
b.开始泡茶后,在圈内的人就要离开,圈内有人会破坏会场的美感。拍照录像的人也请在圈外,非到场内抢个镜头不可时,也快快离开。
c.开始泡茶后就不可以说话了,专心泡茶,奉茶时也不必说<请喝茶>,对方也不必说<谢谢>,如果碰面了,只鞠躬,笑一笑就可以,这样宁静的气氛,才容易体会出茶会的美感,以及人与人间,人与物间,人与地间的互动关系。这是<无我茶会>另一项精神;<培养团体默契>。
d.各位来宾,您看现在泡好茶的人要出去奉茶,每人奉给左边三位茶侣和您,最后一杯留给自己。这是无我茶会<同一方向奉茶>的规矩。每个人都奉茶给左边,这是一种<无所为而为>的奉茶方式,我奉茶给左边的,但喝到的茶却来自右边。我们希望大家放淡<报偿之心>,学习无所为而为地做一件事,这<无报偿之心>也是无我茶会七大精神之一。
e.每个人喝到的四杯茶可能都是不一样的茶,因为茶由每个人自己带来。无我茶会希望每个人都以超然的心情接纳,欣赏这四杯茶,不要由好恶之心。好恶之心太重,会把很多福气排除在外的,因为你不喜欢的东西并不一定是坏东西。<无好恶之心>也是无我茶会所要推广的茶道精神之一。
f.这四杯茶也不一定都泡得很好,可能有一杯泡得又苦又涩。这时应反省自己,是不是也把茶泡坏了,<把茶泡好>是茶道修行上最起码的课程,否则对不起茶,因此<求精进之心>也成了无我茶会的第七大精神。
g.各位来宾,大家可以品尝到来自各个地方的茶,用过的杯子暂时拿在手上,第二和第三道茶还要奉给您。
h.第二道茶是持盅出去奉茶,依然是奉给左边原来的那三位及自己一杯以及各位来宾。
i.奉茶的方向不一定全是左边,也可以是右边,或是间隔的茶侣,只要事前发给大家的公告事项中说明清楚即可。
j.<枫林之夜无我茶会>由Steven老师于2008正式推出,是为了以促进国际茶文化和
利用专业英语的过程中获得的技能而举行,明年是第三届,将于十一月在天福茶学院陆羽广场举行。欢迎大家一起参加。
k.现在是第三道茶,来宾们,这次可能是不同的人奉给您不同的茶。茶道有项很可爱的精神就是泡茶给别人喝,甚至给陌生的人喝,这项精神在无我茶会中更是清楚。
l.各位来宾,您手上的茶慢慢喝,等一下收拾茶具时,刚才奉茶的人会来把杯子收掉。我们不要造成大家任何的不方便,也不要造成环境任何的污染。
4.品茗后活动
喝完茶,无我茶会往往会安排一小段音乐欣赏,让大家回忆一下茶会。这是连接在品茗后的一段空白之美。所以音乐在大家喝完最后一道茶后自然响起,没有介绍,也无需鼓掌,音乐结束时也一样。大家在音乐的余音消失后开始收拾茶具,结束茶会。本次品茗后活动是三位茶友领唱“Right here waiting”
品茗后活动结束后
a.收拾茶具之前,要先把自己用过的杯子擦拭一下,当然只是做初步的处理,免得别人收回时太不整洁。这是茶道处处为对方着想的精神。全套茶具回去后再行清洗。
b.擦拭完杯子,出去将自己的杯子收回,顺便收回参观者手上的杯子。这时依旧保持安静。
c.杯子收回后,将茶具收拾妥当,结束茶会。
d.各位来宾,本次无我茶会到此结束,感谢大家的参与,有何宝贵意见欢迎提供给我们,更希望下次您能和我们一起泡茶。谢谢。
