In 1906 in Boston, a small, esoteric book about tea was written. It was to being read aloud in the Boston salon of a famous socialite. Nearly a century later, Okakura Kakuzo's The Book of Tea Classic Edition is still beloved the world over, making it an essential part of any tea enthusiast's collection. While its author discusses such topics as Zen and Taoism, he also includes the secular. Interwoven with the history of Japanese tea and its place in Japanese society is a poignant commentary on Asian culture and our ongoing fascination with it, as well as essays on art, spirituality, poetry, and more.

Okakura Kakuzo (1862-1913) devoted his life to teaching, art, Zen, and the preservation of Japanese art and culture, working as an ambassador, teacher, writer, and, at the time of his death, as the Curator of Chinese and Japanese Art at the Boston Museum.
