HAD 124: Japanese Tea Ceremony

I honestly don’t know what’s going on. Normally, I pour a drink and then I drink it, and the process is over, but apparently there can be a bit more to it. In Japan they take it very seriously. They have a long history of tea masters, which is not like brewmasters. We aren’t going to go through any ceremony here, but we will have a drink.
