自如清庵|建構茶與生活自在空間 Constructing a Free Space for Tea and Life

一片葉子落入水中,改變了水的味道,從此有了茶。喝茶是一種生活方式,而一個空間擁有這種能力,以潤物於無聲的方式,讓進入的每個人在不知不覺中收穫一份安寧與自在,它便是自如清庵。

A leaf fell once into the water, changing the taste of the water, and since then there has been tea. Drinking tea is a way of life, and for a special space to have this ability to smooth things in a silent way, so that everyone who enters can unknowingly enjoy a sense of peace and freedom, at the Naturally Contented Tea Pavilion.

因自如而清庵

自如即自在,人生不如意得證嚴法師開示,茶空間主人林筱如表示,「自如清庵,就是我。從茶出發,自詡是名茶人,如何吃、如何穿,擁有自己一套審美。」喜歡自如這首歌,恰巧名字裡有一個「如」字,心理的信仰與堅定連結起來,故將茶空間取名為自如清庵。而茶在自如裡是不設限的,或許在傳統嚴謹茶人中難以想像,於林筱如卻是一道靈光,回歸生活本質,它可以新穎現代讓年輕人自在品茶。進入茶室,牆上的抹藍,是林筱如的一份依戀,她期許自己能海納百川,運用人生智慧將茶道文化推廣到下一輩的年輕人。

用茶語言連結情感

泡茶,是與匠人對話,感受器物之美。飲茶,是和知己對話,感受人性之美。茶與人一樣,各有不同的韻味之美,飲一杯茶,不僅僅是茶湯之味,更是每一處細節的深刻體驗。水是茶之母,器是茶之父,世人認為茶道器皿是藝術品,而茶人認為要拿來使用,才能賦予器的意義與價值。談及哪款茶葉代表自己,身為林筱如的好友美華姐,她以東方美人喻林筱如本人,清新脫俗與大器包容;而林筱如則自喻武夷岩茶,個性鮮明,追求真我。茶舍因有老公支持,得以自在經營,環境大氣,藝術氣息濃郁,視野開闊,點上一壺香茶,約上兩三好友,置身其中,品茗、暢聊、賞器,感受美好生活。自如清痷,便是集合雅緻茶生活的相關元素,共同構建起一個屬於東方生活的細膩體驗,將茶生活呈現更為豐富。

一杯茶 品人生浮沉

善與愛是林筱如身上的標籤,身為一個茶人她呼籲國人要提倡綠色環保、氣候治理。茶是大地的產物,同樣一支茶,因氣候與土壤一年不如一年,水質病蟲害愈來越多,回歸本身,她鼓勵栽培茶農有機種植,不施肥不破壞大地為原則,「善」致力於可持續發展,保護生態,循環相生。因邂逅台灣茶家李曙韻,讓林筱如走上了茶道,致力於推廣茶美學的鑑賞並將茶文化融入生活中。一甜二苦三回味,能喝出茶中真味的人,便自然會熱愛生活,摯愛生命,無論世事變遷,都會保持一顆如茶水般純淨恬淡之心去代之,最終贏得情趣昂然的人生。

Clearing the Path Naturally Contented Tea Pavilion To Natural Freedom

Such freedom means being at ease, and life is not always what we expect, as Master Yan taught. Lin Hsiaoju, the owner of the tea space, says, the “Naturally Contented Tea Pavilion”, is me myself. “Starting from tea, she has become a famous tea person, learning that how we eat, and how we wear, all have their own set of aesthetics.”I like the song”Naturally Contented”. It happens that there is a “Contented” (Ju) character in her name, which connects her psychological belief and resilience, so she named her tea space”Naturally Contented Tea Pavilion”. There are no limits to tea at Naturally Contented, which is perhaps unimaginable among the traditionally rigorous tea fans, but Lin Hsiaoju is an inspiration, by returning to the essence of life which can be novel and modern allowing young people to contentedly enjoy tea at ease. Entering the tea room, the distinctive blue on the wall is Lin Hsiaoju’s favorite. She hopes that she will be able to embrace all the rivers of knowledge and use the wisdom of life to promote the tea ceremony culture to the next generation of young people.

Use Tea Language to Connect Our Emotions

Making tea involves talking with craftsmen and feeling the beauty of artifacts.Drinking tea is to talk with your closest confidants and feel the beauty of human nature. Tea is the same as human beings, each with its different charm and beauty. Drinking a cup of tea is not only about the taste of the tea, but also a profound experience in every aspect and detail. Water is the mother of tea, and utensils are the father of tea. The world believes that tea ceremony utensils are works of art, and tea afficionados believe that they must be actually used to give the utensils meaning and value. Speaking of which tea represents herself, as Lin Hsiaoju’s close friend Meihua says, she sees Hsiaoju as an Oriental beauty who is fresh, refined and tolerant; Lin Hsiaoju describes himself as Wuyi Rock Tea, which has a distinct personality and pursues its’ true self. Thanks to the support of her husband, the tea house is able to operate freely. The environment is very open, the artistic atmosphere is strong, and the perspective is broad. You can order a pot of fragrant tea and meet two or three friends. Place yourself in the experience, enjoying tea, chatting, and the beautiful life. Naturally Contented Tea Pavilion is a collection of the essential elements of the elegant tea life, together to build a delicate experience belonging to the Eastern life, and presenting the tea life more abundantly.

A Cup of Tea to Enjoy The Vicissitudes Of Life

Kindness and love are the labels affixed to Lin Hsiaoju. As a tea person, she appeals to the public to promote green environmental protection and climate governance. Tea is a product of the earth. To achieve the same tea, when the climate and soil are not as good as the year before, the water quality deteriorates, with more and more pests and diseases, it is essential to return to nature. She encourages tea farmers to grow organically. The principle of “no fertilization and no damage to the earth” is the principle of “goodness”, to ensure sustainable development, ecological protection, and mutual growth. Lin Hsiaoju embarked on the path of the tea ceremony because of encountering Taiwanese tea maker Li Shuyun, dedicated to promoting the appreciation of tea aesthetics and integrating tea culture into contemporary life. Tea is first sweet, then bitter and finally has subtle aftertastes. People who can appreciate the true taste of tea will naturally love life and appreciate living. No matter how much the world the changes, they will maintain a pure and calm heart like tea to refresh and replenish them, and ultimately win with a fun life.
