Daguan Tea Theory

Issuing time:2022-03-09 16:39

Following "Lu Yu's Classic of Tea: The Classic Edition", Wang Jianrong, the former director of the China Tea Museum, made another masterpiece to interpret the famous monograph on tea studies in the Song Dynasty, "Daguan Tea Theory", so that tea lovers can better understand the essence of Chinese tea. The full text of the classic interpretation, the obscure classical Chinese, is no longer a stumbling block to study tea books. The phonetic pronunciation of uncommon words, the annotation of short sentences, and the concise and easy-to-understand translation allow readers to read and learn clearly. A grand view of tea books in the past dynasties, which clearly shows the evolution of the tea ceremony. Corresponding to the tea planting, tea making, and tea identification in the Northern Song Dynasty, it shows the changes of tea ceremony techniques in different periods. Modern interpretation, to experience the inheritance and development of today's tea people, the methods of tea making, boiling water, and Tibetan roasting under modern scientific and technological means are very different from the past, but still retain the true color, fragrance and taste of tea. The text is solid and detailed, and the pictures also accurately restore historical details. The methods of making and ordering tea in the Song Dynasty, the tea utensils for preparing tea, the restoration of the hundred operas of tea, the ancient tea paintings... can all be presented to the public in a near real way.


In recent years, with the revival of traditional culture and the rise of aesthetics, the Song Dynasty has been frequently mentioned, and even triggered a "Song Dynasty fever". The reason why people never forget the Song Dynasty is not only because it was the era when the culture reached its peak, but also because of the elegant and refined way of life of the Song people. It can be said that it is the source of life aesthetics that integrates art and life, even in contemporary times.

"God bestows people with eyes, nose, and tongue, that is, color, fragrance, and taste. Although the preferences between them are different, the refined and the common are judged accordingly." Lighting tea, burning incense, arranging flowers, and hanging paintings The "four kinds of nostalgia" of "color, fragrance and taste" were endowed with the quality of elegance by the Song people, and laid the keynote of elegance for later generations. Among them, ordering tea is the first of the "four arts".

If the Tang Dynasty first started the fashion of drinking tea, then the Song Dynasty was undoubtedly the heyday of Chinese tea culture. In the Song Dynasty, from the royal family and nobles to the merchants and pawns, drinking tea and fighting tea were the lifestyles. The prosperity of tea affairs prompted the continuous development of the tribute tea system in the Song Dynasty, reaching its peak during the time of Emperor Huizong.

Song Huizong was erudite and fond of the ancients, and he was "happy and fond of" exquisite things. Those who were in love would go deeper and deeper, such as calligraphy and painting, lake stones, beautiful utensils... The same is true for tea. Song Huizong pushed the ordering of tea in the Song Dynasty to the extreme, and even wrote a "Daguan Tea Theory".

This is the only treatise on tea written by the emperor so far, which makes Daguan Tea Treatise stand out among many tea books. The whole article is clear in argumentation and elegant in rhetoric, and systematically expounds the tea affairs in Song Dynasty, from production, selection of water, to tea ordering techniques and evaluation criteria.

My main research direction is the deep processing of tea and the utilization of functional components, and the theory and technology of tea processing. With the development of science and technology, modern tea processing is more refined, and production and processing are gradually changing in the direction of mechanization, automation and standardization. But looking back at the craftsmanship of the Song Dynasty, it is still amazing. Song people's understanding of technical categories such as mountain fields and craftsmanship, as well as the richness of processing technology, still inspires today's tea practitioners at the technical level.

In an age of advanced technology and material abundance, tradition can sometimes be seen as deliberately unconventional, but it's really just a return to the source. Only by looking at tradition objectively and rationally can innovation take it to the next level. The revival of tea culture requires new ideas and new forms to be able to shine.

Tea has a special style, and it can be dipped and dyed from time to time, or one or two of them can be obtained.

The compiler of this book, Wang Jianrong, was born in the tea science class and has been immersed in the museum for decades, and has a profound knowledge of tea science. He spent three years collating and compiling this book "Daguan Tea Theory, Searching for Tea", and always uphold a rigorous and meticulous attitude. In this book, the spirit of a creator is everywhere. For the ancient book version, this book selects the three editions of "Shuoyu" written by Wanwei Shantang, "Shuoyu" written by Hanfenlou and "Integration of Ancient and Modern Books". , with rich photos and illustrations to accurately restore historical details. There is also a part of "Grand View of Ancient and Modern", which connects the Song Dynasty and the present, and clarifies the evolution of Chinese tea ceremony. Let us go back to the "golden age" of both great vulgarity and elegance through the classics, and experience the various tastes of life practiced by Song people. So readers don't feel pressure, read it with a relaxed mind. With tea as the key, we can open the door of traditional culture and let us go further afield.
