"This classic text, first published in 1933, takes one on a journey through time, space and mindfulness. It gives deep insights into how the art of tea ceremony (Cha-no-yu in Japanese, 'hot water for tea'), is not merely about its practical aspects-tea rooms, utensils or gardens-but the arrangement of these various essential components within a space where simplicity is embraced and each movement is a conscious meditation of a calm mind, like a Zen practice." -Kyoto Journal
"I am even more interested in the beautiful art of tea ceremonies now!" -Traveling Book Nerds
