Tea Life, Tea Mind

The tea ceremony is not limited to preparation and tasting. It begins well before the guest arrives. From gestures to utensils, decoration to create harmony, this essay teaches what makes the flavor of this codified ceremony.  

Soshitsu Sen, the 15th descendant of a line of masters of the tea ceremony, recounts his journey to perceive what the tea ceremony is. In a quasi-Buddhist simplicity, full of patience, compassion and caring, he defines what it means to him to follow the Way of Tea.
