a brief history of the japanese tea ceremony

A tea blog thats licks the chawan clean.

Today we're breaking down the Japanese Tea Ceremony with a turn of the page. Soshitsu Sen XV has wrote many books in his life and this podcast episode is brought to you by one of them. 

Just so you know, we're not even getting past the introduction of the book, such is its content. This episode covers the origin, players, and history of the Japanese tea ceremony within Japan. We'll be following a timeline paraphrased from the text and turning into tangents the entire way so as to explore the characters and events leading up the Urasenke Chado Tradition. Enjoy the ride and keep that cup warm!
