The Book of Tea by Kakuzo Okakura

Product Details

The Book of Tea by Kakuzō Okakura is more than a book about tea. The words waver most delicately between prose and poetry, the educational and the spiritual. The Book of Tea links the history of tea to the aesthetic and cultural aspects of Japanese life. It is a truly beautiful work, presenting the Japanese Tea Ceremony, Zen Buddhism, Taoism and Flower Arranging as a timeless blend of art appreciation, ritual and simplicity. Kakuzō Okakura (1862-1913) was a Japanese scholar who contributed greatly to the development of the arts in Japan. He became a pre-eminent voice in defending Japan's traditional art forms against the drive to modernisation and westernisation, Kakuzō Okakura wrote The Book of Tea in 1906, in English, for a western audience interested in eastern art and custom.
86 pages, perfect bound. A collector’s item and world heritage classic.
