Japanese--my mother tongue, consisting of Hiragana あいうえお, Katakana アイウエオ, and Kanji (Chinese characters) 愛. We even use roman characters. Maybe Kanji makes people to learn Japanese very hard. But I have some German friends who speak and write Japanese very well.

Tea is also a sort of spiritual refreshment, an elixir of clarity and wakeful tranquility. Respectfully preparing tea and partaking of it mindfully create heart-to-heart conviviality, a way to go beyond this world and enter a realm apart. No pleasure is simpler, no luxury cheaper, no consciousness-altering agent more benign. ~ James Norwood Pratt / Japanese tea ceremony. Sado 茶道
