Tea is indispensable in Chinese life, not simply a drink, but a respository of culture, representing the philosophy, aesthetic views, and way of life of the Chinese people. This book presents the richness of Chinese tea and tea culture, covering the origin of tea and its history, methods and customs of drinking tea, and tea-drinking-vessels. It explains the Chinese tea ceremony in depth and introduces teahouse culture, legends about tea, and the literature and art closely connected with tea.
