Thanks for sharing these! I've been curious about this event and it's interesting to see what it actually looks like!

How would the stainless steel table be better than a regular table? Is it because of the need to better judge the colour of the tea?

The stainless steel table comes with water, which makes it easier to clean. The used tea is rinsed off into a slot with a net that catches the leaves, which are discarded later. It is very user-friendly.
