  • ADiscovery Health answered

    Translated as "respect," kei is an expression of thankfulness. It is embodied in the traditional Japanese tea ceremony, where etiquette requires participants to focus their words and actions on appreciating the tea, their surroundings and each other's company. Participants must bow to the host before drinking, admire the tea's taste and remark upon the beauty of their teacup or bowl.
