Today's Tea Blog and Show Notes
Steaming from the kettle today is a tea book review. Curious? You should be! This wonderful little novel: Tea Life, Tea Mind by Shoshitsu Sen XV, is a man of direct lineage to Sen Rikyu. Heads up, he's kind of an important figure when it comes to the Japanese tea ceremony.
This podcast covers the history of the tea ceremony, an overview of the book as a whole, and observations about what the book has to say concerning the tea ceremony. If you practice the ceremony, you'll most assuredly want to pick this book up. If not, well give it a read anyways, the information in here is unexpectedly informative. Hear who the players are, the principles of the ceremony, and the incredible developments that the ceremony has undergone since its inception.
