This illustrated lecture introduces the Japanese “tea ceremony,” as we call it, and the many aspects of Japanese culture which are associated with that activity: architecture, pottery, flower arrangement, gardening, calligraphy, etc.
Unlike leaf tea, The Way of Tea uses ground, powdered tea leaves favoured by Zen monks of the 13th century for its high caffeine content which kept them awake while meditating. The utensils used in the preparation of a bowl of tea are among the artful objects associated with the Way of Tea. The prescribed movements of the host, while making the tea, are derived from Zen.
