This chabu remind us about beautiful metaphor that you heard a lot of times in yout tea life - wind in the pines. This expression reffers to the sound of the water in the kettle. This sound means that water get to the perfect point for brewing fine tea. In time, wind in the pines became a metaphor for the sound of the kettle and to the skill of boiling fine spring water: thoroughly heating the liquid while still preserving its fresh and lively character.
Wind in the pines,
rain in the junipers:
When the sounds first arrive,
Quickly take the bronze kettle
from the bamboo stove.
Await the sounds in silence, and then
The cup of Spring Snow tea
Thus, attending the fire and waiting for wind in the pines was a meditation, a moment of stillness and reflection until its signaled the instant when water reached the perfect point for brewing fine tea.
