Japanese Tea Ceremony : Cha-No-Yu
by A. L. Sadler and Shaun McCabe and Iwasaki Satoko




Overview -
The tea cermony--known as cha-no-yu, or literally "hot water for tea"--has touched nearly every aspect of Japanese life.

First published in 1933 as Cha-No-Yu, or The Japanese Tea Ceremony, this classic remains the gold standard for books on the five-centuries-old tea ceremony, which is itself "an epitome of Japanese civilization." Abundantly illustrated with drawings and photographs showing every aspect of the tea ceremony, this book takes readers on a complete tour of furniture and utensils, architecture and gardens, and numerous other features of cha-no-ya. Photos of tea bowls, teahouses and gardens reveal the exquisite artistry of the cult of tea.

The Japanese Tea Ceremony is a fascinating exploration of one of Japan's greatest arts and details the importance of the tea ceremony's history and traditions, its historical tea masters and its physical manifestations.

This book includes:

  • Descriptions of the many disciples contained within the broader framework of tea ceremony, including art, architecture, gardening and exquisite handicrafts
  • The experiences of masters of the art over the centuries
  • Histories of the various schools and traditions of the art of tea
