The Way of Tea draws upon the wisdom of ancient writings to explain how modern tea lovers can bring peace and serenity to their time with a steaming mug of their favorite beverage—and how to carry that serenity with them throughout the day.

Looking at all aspects of tea and the tea ceremony from a spiritual perspective, The Way of Tea shows readers how in the modern world the way of tea does not need to be some somber religious ceremony, but can instead be a path for anyone to experience and share inner peace, relax the ego, and be free and open—an excellent recipe for a life well lived.

Chapters include:
  • The Tao of Tea
  • The Veins of the Leaf
  • Calm Joy
  • Completion
  • The Tea Space
  • Living Reflections on the Way of Tea
