Philosophy of Tea This books is a quick and informative introduction to the philosophy underpinnig “Teaism”. The book outlines how tea masters tried to live their lives according to the simple grace of the Japanese tea ceremony.For those looking for detailed instructions on conducting a tea ceremony, look elsewhere. But for those who want a handbook on a way of life, read further

amazing recognition I loved this book. It explains the essence of Taoism, Japanese culture, and I recognized so much of my own experience of religion – originally Christian protestant, not practising. This book is a real eye opener. If you are looking for a book about tea you may be disappointed, it is a book about a way of life.
