Simultaneously, a different type of tea gathering evolved, which focused on simplicity, with roots in Zen Buddhism. The tea ceremony that is practiced today can last several hours, and there are many subtle etiquette rules that you might not notice, if not for insights from an expert tea ceremony instructor.
