In 1906 in turn-of-the century Boston, a small, esoteric book about tea was written with the intention of being read aloud in the famous salon of Isabella Gardner. It was authored by Okakura Kakuzo, a Japanese philosopher, art expert, and curator. Little known at the time, Kakuzo would emerge as one of the great thinkers of the early 20th century, a genius who was insightful, witty-and greatly responsible for bridging Western and Eastern cultures.

Nearly a century later, Kakuzo's The Book of Tea Classic Edition is still beloved the world over. The Book of Tea is a delightful cup of enlightenment from a man far ahead of his time.
