    The Book of Tea is much more than a book about tea. It's a celebration of the arts and culture of Japan, and a portrait of tea ceremony, the "Way of Tea", as the pinnacle of Japanese spirituality and artistic life. Written in 1906 by Kakuzo Okakura, curator of Chinese and Japanese Art at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts and a noted scholar and art critic, this modern classic traces the history of tea from its early medicinal uses in China, through the development of Chinese tea culture, and finally to the role of tea in Japanese Zen, culture, and politics.

    The Book of Tea by Okakura Kakuzo is a long essay linking the role of tea (teaism) to the aesthetic and cultural aspects of Japanese life. Addressed to a western audience, it was originally written in English and is one of the great English tea classics. Okakura had been taught at a young age to speak English and was proficient at communicating his thoughts to the Western mind. In his book, he discusses such topics as Zen and Taoism, but also the secular aspects of tea and Japanese life.

    À la fois poétique et intelligent, apaisant et vivifiant, "Le livre du thé", destiné aux lecteurs occidentaux, permet de mieux appréhender les subtilités de la culture asiatique. Véritable traité philosophique, il interroge le sens de nos existences et notre rapport à l'environnement. "La philosophie du thé n'est pas une simple esthétique dans l'acception ordinaire du terme, car elle nous aide à exprimer, conjointement avec l'éthique et avec la religion, notre conception intégrale de l'homme et de la nature."
