This ritual is the most natural for meditation, as it was created with that purpose in mind. There is a Zen phrase, “ichi-go ichi-e”, which can be translated “one time, one meeting”. This phrase is meant to remind us how each moment is unique and to treasure it. The Japanese Way of Tea (or Japanese Tea Ceremony) was founded by Sen no Rikyu. There is a story told about him, where a student asked him to say the most important teachings of the tea ceremony.
Sen no Rikyu answered, “First you must make a delicious bowl of tea; lay the charcoal so the water boils; arrange the flowers as they are in the field; in the summer suggest coolness, in the winter, warmth; do everything ahead of time; prepare for rain; and give those with whom you find yourself every consideration.”
The student was disappointed with his response, as it was already known to him. Rikyu told him that the difficulty lies in doing the simple things well. If he could do that, he would be able to teach Rikyu. (https://buddhaimonia.com/blog/find-peace-destress-with-tea-meditation)
In modern practice, the Japanese tea ceremony can be broken down into simple steps. As Sen no Rikyu noted, though, the difficulty is in doing each of the simple things well. Seek to be truly present in each step; savor the slowness of water boiling, sink into the peace of simply enjoying the tea you drink, relish the company you may have or the peace of solitude, and be grateful above all.
