The Book of Tea
by Okakura Kakuzo
Publisher: Putman's sons 1906
Number of pages: 184
The book focuses on the Japanese Art of Tea, but the author offers a rarely seen perspective on Eastern and Western cultures. Okakura Kakuzo gives a brief history of tea in China, and the stages of tea-drinking in that country. His main focus is on Zen and its connection to Teaism, and of the influence of the Zen monks in establishing and refining the Japanese Tea Ceremony.
