Taoists are pleasure to drinking tea while practicing alchemy. Taoism had a very high cultural status in Tang Dynasty. The use and importance of tea by Taoist priests inevitably make broader impacts in the whole society. In fact, Taoism had a wide and profound influence on the tea-chanting poetry in Tang Dynasty. This paper takes Lu Yu, Jiaoran, Lu Tong and others as examples to illustrate, and give consideration to the general aspects. The reason for this is that, firstly, the highest rulers of the Tang Dynasty unprecedentedly placed Taoism at the top of Confucianism, and Buddhism, which had a wide and far-reaching impact in the field of culture. Literatis are eager to understand Taoism and believe in Taoism has become a fashion. This must be reflected in tea culture. Secondly, literatis regard drinking tea as an activity to regulate mood and highlight oneself, and gradually enhance tea cultural, so "tasting" tea has become an art, that is, tea ceremony.
