Linking object with the infinitive

Merhaba.

While reading an article on wikipedia about Turkish type of a kettle, I found a headline saying "Çayın hazırlanması". I know it means "Preparing of tea" but literally "Tea´s being-prepared activity". But what is the difference if I put "çay" as the direct object of the infinitive "hazırlamak", like çay ( or çayı ) hazırlama - "preparing a (the) tea".

 

Does it make a big semantic difference?

çayın hazırlanması is passive.

çayı hazırlama is active.

I dont think there is a big semantic difference.
