Blurring lines

In the world of tea, there is no lack of big brand names, luxurious designs and attractive marketing campaigns. How similar yet different a single pursuit of tea as a pastime can be! I am brewing Dongding oolong in a mixed clay pot and pouring tea into individual tea cups at equal concentration. The founders of TWG are probably enjoying scones and marmalade with tea steeping in a big pot. Sugar and milk on the side, no doubt. Two traditions, one piping hot beverage. Where do you fall in the spectrum?
