Okakura, Kakuzo, The Book of Tea, v1, 18 Sept 2007

Kakuzo Okakura: The Book of Tea (1906)

A brief history of tea, used a vehicle to explain Japanese aesthetics.

Wikipedia says:
The Book of Tea was written by Okakura in the early 20th century. It was first published in 1906, and has since been republished many times.
In the book, Kakuzo introduces the term Teaism and how Tea has affected nearly every aspect of Japanese culture, thought, and life. The book is accessibile to Western audiences because Kakuzo was taught at a young age to speak English; and spoke it all his life, becoming 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. The book emphasises how Teaism taught the Japanese many things; most importantly, simplicity. Kakuzo argues that this tea-induced simplicity affected art and architecture, and he was a long-time student of the visual arts. He ends the book with a chapter on Tea Masters, and spends some time talking about Sen no Rikyu and his contribution to the Japanese Tea Ceremony.

Very nice book if you love tea. I highly recommend reading a book from Yasushi Inoue called "The Tea Master" too or books about the Wabi Sabi philosophy of life.
