The Book of Tea review Ç 103 'Meanwhile let us have a sip of tea The afternoon glow is brightening the bamboos the fountains are bubbling with delight the soughing of the pines is heard in our kettle'In this charming book from 1906 Okakur. This book was just wonderful It discusses the history of teaism in Asia mainly Japan but also China It s written in a very poetic and philosophical manner Not only does the book talk about tea it also talks about how tea has influenced Japanese culture especially Japanese cuisine clothing literature and art I learned some uite surprising facts For example onions were added to tea in some places and tea drinking was considered to be an occupation of depraved peopleThe book also goes into detail about the Japanese tea ceremony and how Japanese tea houses are built in a specific way for atmosphere Everything is exact the decor the utensils the clothing of the participants the asymmetric nature the seemingly fragile architectureIt s uite amazing the amount of detail that goes into conducting a tea ceremonyThere are also many myths and legends added anecdotally Also some information on Buddhism and Taoism and Confucianism was included as well as poetry As a lover of flowers I enjoyed the ode to flowersOne of favourite uotes is But I am not to be a polite Teaist So much harm has been done already by the mutual misunderstanding of the New World and the Old that one need not apologize for contributing his tithe to the furtherance of a better understanding I wholeheartedly agree with this Additionally we have developed along different lines but there is no reason why one should not supplement the other Hear hearOkakura is definitely very patriotic Side note one of my Japanese co workers told me that Okakura was forced to commit seppuku Samurai ritualistic suicide as he was heavily involved in politics On one hand he bemoans how the West supposedly looks down on Japan and then he displays ethnocentric ualities himself especially when he noted that Western homes have a vulgar display of riches Hmm That was my only gripe with this book I will definitely be re reading it

The Book of Tea review Ç 103 A explores Zen Taoism Tea Masters and the significance of the Japanese tea ceremonyOne of 126 new books in the bestselling Little Black Classics series to celebrate the first ever Penguin Classic in 1946 Each. This book is about so much than tea This is about how something as seemingly simple as a beverage can define a culture s history philosophy and aesthetics When it was originally published in 1906 the East was just opening to the West and they had few cultural bridges to use to form bonds and begin to understand each other But both hemispheres shared a love of tea and a certain ritualization of its consumption Through the history of the preparation of tea and how the beverage travelled all over the world Okakura sought to explain his culture to Westerners and dispel their misunderstandings about the East in general and Japan in particularThe spiritual aspect of the tea ceremony truly is about an appreciation of beauty in its smallest details and it s a way to create a moment of peaceful serenity that has an almost meditative uality Okakura ties the links between the tea ceremony and Zen practice and Taoist philosophy and shows that the beverage has influenced every aspect of his culture in the most subtle yet remarkable waysOkakura s writing is beautiful and I can only assume his words were chosen with as much care as he devotes to detailed information he lovingly packaged in this small book I have been discovering Japanese writers over the last couple of years and something about the ethereal beauty of their writing even translated leaves me breathless he describes a bowl of matcha as the froth of the liuid jade To be read slowly over a bowl of matcha or while nibbling on cucumber sandwiches washed down with the very best Earl Grey
