A Dream of Splendor, a 40-episode TV drama streaming on Tencent Video platform, has become a smash hit recently. It narrates a story about a woman running a teahouse with her two friends who were rescued from family tortures in the Song Dynasty (960-1279).

Centering on tea, the series features China's traditional tea acrobatics, which is also one of the intangible cultural heritage items in China. The heroine demonstrates dazzling skills of pouring tea and creating beautiful patterns on the surface of a cup of tea in some scenes.
