The Japanese Way of Tea: From Its Origins in China to Sen Rikyu

by Sen XV Soshitsu (Author)

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