Thursday May 19, 2011
2nd Steep of the Day
Opened up some OLD STOCK
The Te’a Roma Adventures of Tea Series
I went with the Orange Mocha Chai
This is a Good Bagged Black Tea
The Orange Flavor is less Strong then the Mocha.
But The Later Sipps allow the Orange Notes to Drift Thru the Liquor.
I Think the Company has gone out of Business though.
No website or New Teas in a Long While.
If anybody knows more about this Tea.

Keep On Steepin

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.
