Here is a minor classic of the Orient. It is perhaps the most entertaining, most charming explanation and interpretation of traditional Japanese culture in terms of the tea ceremony. First published in 1906, it traces the custom from its roots in Taoism to its role as a Zen meditative discipline.

It's alright. It's short enough to listen to two - three times and still enjoy it. It's interesting to see how tea is tied into different ideas such as culture classes, tradition, and one's personality.
No. This book is not about tea, nor Japanese tea ceremony, or anything else physically linked to tea as a drink. But this book may begin to teach you about a mindset required, in order to begin to understand Japanese tea ceremony. Sounds complicated? It's not. Read the book, you'll know what I mean. :-)
Sort of... but personally I didn't liked the narration very much.
