A famous Japanese proverb, "Ichigoichie", means that only 1 opportunity exists for 1 meeting. In other words, each moment is precious because each moment will never be the same. "Serving tea means this very moment of spending time together will never repeat itself again. Therefore, I will present the best tea I can for you." Japan's grand master of tea, Senrikyu, taught this way of thinking. By looking at the delicate feminine shape of Chasen, 1 is filled with a sense of serenity, and remembers the words of this tea master.
