The Japanese way of tea : from its origins in China to Sen Rikyū by Sōshitsu Sen( )

19 editions published between 1983 and 2000 in English and Japanese and held by 2,186 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author follows tea drinking practices from their arrival in Japan to the time of Rikyu, considering at each stage the relevant historical changes and their significance for the Way of Tea. Shortly after its arrival during the Heian era (794-1185), tea was celebrated by Japanese poets, who attributed the same spiritual qualities to the beverage as had their Chinese contemporaries. During the medieval era, however, tea began to take on a distinctively Japanese character. Eisai (1141-1215), the founder of the Rinzai sect of Japanese Zen Buddhism, accentuated the medicinal aspect of tea and saw it as a means of salvation in a spiritually degenerate age (mappo)

"In this lavishly illustrated book, with its 90 color plates and almost 500 black-and-white photos, Soshitsu Sen, fifteenth-generation Grand Master of the Urasenke school of tea, which was founded by Sen Rikyu's great-grandson, sets forth the way of tea as it has developed over the centuries and is practiced today. The reader is introduced to the setting, utensils, and refreshments used for tea, and is then guided through a tea gathering from the time the invitations are sent, through the serving and drinking of the tea, to the final bows of the host as the guests depart through the garden"--
