This book is a brief but classic essay on tea drinking, its history, restorative powers, and rich connection to Japanese culture. The author felt that Tea-ism was at the very center of Japanese life and helped shape everything from art, aesthetics, and an appreciation for the ephemeral to architecture, design, gardens, and painting. In tea could be found one source of what Okakura felt was Japans and, by extension, Asias unique power to influence the world. Containing both a history of ta in Japan and lucid, wide-ranging comments on the schools of tea, Zen, Taoism, flower arranging, and the tea ceremony and its tea-masters, this book is deservedly a timeless classic and will be of interest to anyone interested in the Japanese arts and ways.
