Make a delicious bowl of tea; lay the charcoal so that it heats the water; arrange the flowers as they are in the field; in summer suggest coolness; in winter, warmth; do everything ahead of time; prepare for rain; and give those with whom you find yourself every consideration.A disciple remarked that this seemed elementary. Rikyu replied, "Then if you can host a tea gathering without deviating from any of the rules I have just stated, I will become your disciple." A Zen reply. Fascinating. --Robin Davidson, Amazon.co.uk --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

The book is too pathetic and pretentious, I also don't like the style of writing: it's difficult to follow the author's thought.Published 7 days ago by Katsiaryna Suryna
Was not impressed. Felt like I was reading more about zenism and taoism. Did not feel I actually read or learned about the actual tea ceremony and it's origin and customsPublished 12 days ago by herman chan
