Chado: The Way of Tea
'Chado - The way of tea' explores the unique and varied aspects of the Japanese teaceremony. First published in Japanese in 1960, this work covers all tea-related events in Japan throughout the year, serving as the central text for followers of chanoyu, the Japanese tea ceremony. At once an almanac and encyclopedia of tea, this book includes traditional contemplative poetry used during the tea ceremony, vignettes of festivals and formal occasions, and reflective short essays on the subject of tea. The entry for each month contains nine parts - features, events, memorials, flowers, cakes, foods, meals, words for contemplation, and meisu (utensils and related furnishings).
