Not only that a action of dressing you up,

to make tea you must keep your mind.

To be a slave to looks, it makes you can't develop your powers for tea. 

 Improving your mind, you had better enjoy a tea, not your best clothes but as usual. 

More important one is undecorated mind than dressed up.

You may wear special tea clothes as much as you like.

But it needs you have something you don't wear anything.

That is without wearing special tea clothes.

It is important that you make a tea and you have a tea with ordinary mind.

Unfortunately there is no tea with ordinary mind and usual sense at the tea ceremony  recently.

There is no hope for the future, they hold a tea ceremony like competition for women's clothes.
