teatime

One of the performances during Japanese Cultural Night was a reenactment of a traditional Japanese (what else?) tea ceremony. The whole thing was sooo slooow. Dehydrated and/or impatient guests need not apply.

Emcee: The guest informs the host that she enjoys the tea.
Me: What if she doesn’t enjoy the tea?
Karen: The guest informs the host that she does not enjoy the tea.

I wonder if the guest informing the host that she enjoys the tea is a case of phatic communication?
