中國茶藝Chinese Tea Art
為與日本茶道、韓國茶禮相區別，1977年臺灣眾多學者共同提出 “茶藝” 這一概念，并于1978年在臺北和高雄分別成立茶藝協會，1982年成立全臺茶藝團體“中華茶藝協會”。 臺灣茶藝帶動了本土茶葉產業的發展，如茶藝師培訓的教育事業、茶藝表演的演藝業、茶文化的出版業。臺灣的茶藝在中國大陸改革開放之后，很快傳入內地，并在茶行業內迅速傳播，對大陸茶文化的內容提供了重要的補充。
In order to distinguish it from Japanese tea ceremony and Korean tea ceremony, many scholars in Taiwan jointly proposed the concept of “tea art” in 1977. In 1978, Tea Art Associations were established in Taipei and Kaohsiung respectively. In 1982, the tea culture group “Chinese Tea Art Association” was established. Taiwan tea art has driven the development of the local tea industry, such as tea artist training, tea art performance, and the publishing industry of tea culture. After the reform and opening up in mainland China, Taiwan's tea art was quickly introduced to the mainland and spread rapidly in the tea industry, providing an important supplement to the content of the mainland tea culture.
Tea art is a comprehensive art with inclusive, wide-ranging and profound knowledge and culture, covering various traditional and modern arts such as tea art, aesthetics, literature, religion, philosophy, ethics, morality, folklore, etc. and integrating ceramics, flower arrangements, paintings, music, architecture, decoration, performance together. It benefits and enlightens us in many ways.
Tea art performance is a way for tea artists to showcase tea techniques, methods and art of tea tasting. Due to the different regions, ethnic groups and tea types, the performances are currently in the prosperous period with brilliant points respectively. however, various tea parties, tea culture festivals and tea art houses want to perform tea art according to their own characteristics with their utilitarian purposes, and thus some performances are contrary to the spirit of tea art.
