The Book of Tea Audiobook with MRR
by Kakuzo Okakura
The Book of Tea was written by Okakura Kakuzo in the early 20th
century. It was first published in 1906, and has since been
republished many times. In the book, Kakuzo introduces the
term Teaism and how Tea has affected nearly every aspect of
Japanese culture, thought, and life.
The book is noted to be accessibile to Western audiences
because though Kakuzo was born and raised Japanese, he was
trained from a young age to speak English; and would speak
it all his life, becoming proficient at communicating his
thoughts in the Western Mind. In his book he elucidates such
topics as Zen and Taoism, but also the secular aspects of
Tea and Japanese life.
The book emphasises how Teaism
taught the Japanese many things; most importantly, simplicity.
Kakuzo argues that this tea-induced simplicity affected art and
architecture, and he was a long-time student of the visual arts.
He ends the book with a chapter on Tea Masters, and spends some
time talking about Sen no Rikyu and his contribution to the
Japanese Tea Ceremony.
