1st Steep of the Day.
This was my wifes choice at the Tea shop
She enjoys light/Green teas more then my Blacks.
But the smell was what sold her on this one.
The Dry Green is so Strong with Almond.
You can’t wait to steep it.
A 3 min Steep in 205 (not boiling water)
Starts your flavorful journey.
Liquor is Clear Green.
with the same rich Almond smell as Dry leaves.
And the Strong Flavor infuses into the Cup.
My better half still knows best.
Keep on Steepin

205 °F / 96 °C 3 min, 0 sec

The Book of Tea Okakura Kakuzo

The Book of Tea was written by Okakura Kakuzo in the early 20th century. It was first published in 1906, and has since been republished many times. – In the book, Kakuzo introduces the term Teaism and how Tea has affected nearly every aspect of Japanese culture, thought, and life. The book is noted to be accessibile to Western audiences because though Kakuzo was born and raised Japanese, he was trained from a young age to speak English; and would speak it all his life, becoming proficient at communicating his thoughts in the Western Mind. In his book he elucidates such topics as Zen and Taoism, but also the secular aspects of Tea and Japanese life. The book emphasises how Teaism taught the Japanese many things; most importantly, simplicity. Kakuzo argues that this tea-induced simplicity affected art and architecture, and he was a long-time student of the visual arts. He ends the book with a chapter on Tea Masters, and spends some time talking about Sen no Rikyu and his contribution to the Japanese Tea Ceremony.
