The Kings, fearing war, decide to send the ambassadors again to fix the situation. They told the ambassadors to respect each other's cultures and acknowledge their own greetings.
The ambassadors greeted each other peacefully this time, however, when they sat to eat, the Ambassador from Ha realized the food was spicy.
Back in the Kingdom of Ha, spicy food was seen as a food given to guests one dislikes because of its heat. However, in Su, spices are considered a luxury and are only consumed as celebration.
Thus, once again when they went back, they reported animosity from the other parties. The King of Ha became worried and decided to meet the King of Su personally.
The King of Ha and King of Su met, worried about the other. When they met, they both seemed pacifist and greeted each other kindly. However, when the King of Ha sat down, he was offered one cup of tea.
In the land of Ha, there's a rule to pouring tea for guests. One tea means the guest is a stranger, two is for friends and family, and three is for elders and royalty.
