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--now in the Shambhala Pocket Library series. 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.
KAKUZO OKAKURA (1863-1919)--scholar, well-known art critic, and curator of the Chinese and Japanese art collection at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts--devoted his life to the preservation and reawakening of traditional Japanese culture.
