The Way of Tea: Reflections on a Life with Tea (Book Review)

The Way of Tea Reflections on a Life with Tea

This book was written by Aaron Fisher in 2010. He is one of the founders of Global Tea Hut.

While most tea books focus on the history, types of tea, cultivation and processing of tea, etc., this one offers a more spiritual approach.

There is an emphasis in Taoism, but it isn’t religious. That is, anyone can apply it.

It could be described as a way to achieve mindfulness with tea, but I think that it is much deeper than that.

At times it seemed a bit repetitive and with an excessive amount of esoteric content such as the qi of tea, but in general I liked all of the insights given.

I thought that it would apply mainly to Chinese tea, but the philosophy of the Japanese tea ceremony also plays a role.

The book also includes some nice pictures and beautiful Chinese brush paintings.

After reading the it, I now have many more things about tea to think about.

Here’s the link to the book on Amazon.
