The Venice Sketchbook - Rhys Bowen - A Short Summary and Review

The Book of Tea - Kakuzo Okakura - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of The Book of Tea:

Teaism (Taoism) explained.

My favorite Kakuzo Okakura quote from the book:

"The art of life lies in a constant readjustment to our surroundings."


Questions to ponder while reading The Book of Tea:

Do you behave virtuously or properly?

Do you stand upon ceremony?

My review of The Book of Tea:

Calling all Japanophiles.

A good philosophical evaluation.

I fancy a cup of tea.
