Tea Ceremony fromChinese and Japanese Culture

Was doing some research on kung fu tea, 功夫茶 , for a project and I was somehow intrigued by how tea serving is viewed as a form of art.
Service through Design or Service through Art?

In the Japanese culture, there is a proverb that states:
“If man has no tea in him, he is incapable of understanding truth and beauty.”

There is another proverb from the Chinese culture that states:
“Drinking a daily cup of tea will surely starve the apothecary.”
