Book of Tea Shambhala ed.
A modern classic that invites readers to discover a unique ritual that has come to symbolize wisdom, beauty, and the elegant simplicity of Asian culture.
Kakuzo Okakura celebrates the Way of Tea from its ancient origins in Chinese Taoism to its culmination in the Zen discipline known as the Japanese tea ceremony—an enchanting practice bringing together such arts as architecture, pottery, and flower arranging to create an experience that delights the senses, calms the mind, and refreshes the spirit. It describes the rich aesthetic of Asian culture through the history, philosophy, and practice of brewing and drinking tea.
The Book of Tea has been enjoyed by hundreds of thousands of readers since it was first published in 1906.
