Default On-screen tea scenes: good/bad

Inviting: the Companion's welcoming ceremony in Firefly.

Comforting: Mrs. Bridges in Upstairs Downstairs.

Definitive ordering: Picard and his Earl Grey in Star Trek: TNG.

Ethnic caricatu Mickey Rooney in Breakfast at Tiffany's.

Badly timed: Arthur Dent crashing the Heart of Gold's master computer by
asking it to synthesize a cuppa in Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy.

Ill-fated: Sen-no-Rikyu's tea-orgy with Hideyoshi in Rikyu.


Your picks?

I talk about tea scenes in movies as I come across them. There are
rolling tanks and tea service in A Bridge Too Far. Zatoichi either
drank tea or sake before he sliced and diced the bad guys.

The witch serving more-or-less English-style tea in _Spirited Away_, a
film that's soaked in Japanese culture.

The gongfu oolong scene in _Eat Drink Man Woman_.
