Tea ordering is found in the "Records of Tea" of Cai Xiang from the Song Dynasty: "There are many teas and soups with Yunjiao San, and soups and teas with porridge and noodles. The tea is worth seven dollars, and the soup is injected first. Go back and whisk, the soup can be only four minutes, depending on its complexion is bright and white, with no water marks is excellent. Jian'an opened a test, the first water marks are negative, and the durable is the winner. "Said:" Tea of the The best products are all ordered. The fried ones are also regular products. " Shows that in the Song Dynasty, tea was fashionable.
One of the meanings of "order soup" refers to "Keisi Jingtang", according to Song Yuanwen's "Leisure Commentary": "The ancients came to order tea and tea to order soup. This is also a regular gift."
According to Song Yanming's "Southern Window Chronicles", "Keizhi has soup, I do n’t know when it starts, but it goes to the government house, down to Bali, Mo Zhi or waste ... Gai Ke sits for a long time, I am afraid there are many words If he is so angry, he will drink soup. "
See also Song Zhu or "Pingzhou Tantan": "Today's secular customers go to tea and go to soup. The soup is made from fragrant herbs, warm or cold, and there is no one who does not use licorice. This custom is everywhere in the world. . "
Another meaning of "order soup" is to explain "by passenger". The aforementioned "Dian Tang" was originally the etiquette and custom of "Ki Ci Jing Tang", and it was not intended to be later cited as a means of "civilization chasing passengers".
In Wei Tai's "Ai Xuan Transcript", there was an official in the Song dynasty called Hu Mei, who was transferred to Xingyuan, Shaanxi, to become the prefecture. Due to his poor family and long distance, he was unable to go to office, so he sought to meet with the principal of the Privy Council, Chen Shengzhi. Unexpectedly, Chen was not harmonious, and he did not want to listen to his report.
"Mie de Tang, San Di resigned from the ground," Hu Mei did not drink after receiving the soup, but poured it in the ground and left.
"Dian Tang" Zhuke is reflected in the Yuan Zaju, for example, "Dian Tang is Zhuke, I will hold it up" ("Frozen Su Qin"), "You Xiulei's ear is called" Dang Tang "" Will ") and so on.
Zhang Xiang, a recent person, also explained this in his "Interpretation of Poems, Quotations, and Quotations": "In the old days, when guests and guests met, there was a habit of bringing tea to the guests. When the guests were on the move, the host wanted to treat the guests with tea, and thought it was a courtesy. It is evil. If the guest is unwilling to talk to them, the owner often gives tea as a gesture to move quickly. "Thus, it can be seen that raising the tea cup can also be used to send off guests and chase away guests.
