Product Description

The Japanese Way of Tea, From its Origins in China to Sen Rikyu, -by Sen Soshitsu XV.

Almost a millennium before the perfection of chado by Sen Rikyu (1522-1591), the Chinese scholar-official Lu Yu (d. 785) wrote exhaustively about tea and its virtues.

Recent Grand Tea Master, Sen Soshitsu, begins his examination of tea's origins and development from the eighth century through the Heian and medieval eras. This volume illustrates that modes of thinking and practices now associated with the Japanese Way of Tea can be traced to China— where from the classical period tea was imbued with a spiritual quality.

This book is a must-have addition to your library if you are studying Japanese Tea Ceremony, or tea in general.

This book is paper bound. It is published by the University of Hawaii Press and is in good condition.
