Chiayi County—

There are spring tea, summer tea, fall tea and winter tea.

To promote the tea culture in Taiwan, “Perennial Tea Ceremony” (Perennial, literally means four steps or sequences that are linked together and each one represents a season of the year) was founded. The tea ceremony includes four topics: 春風(Spring Wind),夏露(Summer Dew), 秋籟(Fall Sounds), and冬陽(Winter Sunshine).

Each tea feast (茶席) and tea master (司茶) stands by in the four directions (east, south, west and north). The different seasonal flowers are put on tea table at each tea feast. Six chairs are arranged to be put between the tea feasts, making the decoration as a circle which symbolizes the 24 solar terms and represents that nature continues.

Each tea master is in charge of making the seasonal tea. Spring tea is refreshing and vigorous when summer tea tastes strong and passionate. Fall tea brings a feeling of little desolation but still charm. Winter tea, mainly black tea, represents the quiet land in winter.

【阿里山茶之道】四季茶序運轉生息 品茗茶葉四季芬香

黃柏庸/嘉義縣

  二十四節氣對於農作生產來說是相當重要的一個環節,也是我們老祖先的智慧結晶。茶葉就是標準依照節氣生長運轉的作物之一,依季節不同而劃分出春、夏、秋、冬茶。

  為提升台灣茶文化推廣與層次,阿里山茶之道發展「四序茶會」,透過茶會的佈置、儀式,點出「春風」、「夏露」、「秋籟」、「冬陽」…等四季主題,同時也帶入茶葉在各季節的差異。

  四序茶會的佈置,會在東南西北四方位,各設置一個茶席與司茶,茶桌上分別放置象徵該季節的茶花,茶席與茶席間擺置六張椅子,形成一個圓圈,如此四面象徵二十四節氣,同時也闡述自然界中的圓融、運轉、生生不息之意涵。

  每一位司茶負責泡飲該季節主題的茶種,春茶主要以清新、蓬葧朝氣為主體方向;夏茶則帶出較剛烈、熱情的茶飲味道;而秋茶的特色,帶給人一點點蕭瑟卻又迷人的氣味;至於冬茶在色澤上,以黑茶為主,用以營造出大地沉寂的冬眠意境。如此四季運轉,成為「四季茶序」呈現大自然圓融韻律與普遍生命之美的駐解,同時也帶出茶道文化的分門層次。(攝影/洪榕)
