Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“A seminal guide to Asian life and thought. . . . Very highly recommended.”—Midwest Book Review

The classic 1906 essay on tea drinking, its history, aesthetics, and deep connection to Japanese culture. Kakuzo Okakura felt “Teaism” could influence the world: “Tea with us becomes more than an idealisation of the form of drinking; it is a religion of the art of life.”

Synopsis:

A timeless classic that points to tea as Asia's unique power to influence the world.

About the Author

Okakura (1863-1913) was an administrator and scholar who had a profound effect on art and aesthetics both in Japan and the West. He helped found an arts college and in 1904 became an assistant curator at Boston's Museum of Fine Arts. Through his writings, Okakura was able to permanently affect the way the West viewed Japan and Asia.
