Reflections from the world-renowned Japanese scholar Okakura Kakuzo's classic The Book of Tea filter through the beautiful pages of this adult coloring book, bringing a love of tea, art, life, and nature together as one.

"Those who cannot feel the littleness of great things in themselves are apt to overlook the greatness of little things in others."
from The Book of Tea by Okakura Kakuzo

It's about emptying your mind of cares as you enjoy one of life's simplest pleasures. Now, Meditations on Tea presents an adult coloring experience as soothing as a hot cup of your favorite tea blend.
