The Korean Way of Tea: An Introductory Guide Reviews
As a tea traveller on my way to the Hadong Tea Festival in South Korea this was the first book I purchased. It is an excellent read packed with useful and informative information about all facets of Korean Tea. Remember that no book can cover the whole subject as broad as tea in one publication and this book is an excellent opening. After reading this book you will surely go on to find out more about the production and culture of the Korean Way of Tea as it is so well written.
Found this book on The Korean Way of Tea enlighting. Every culture seems to perform ceremonies when serving tea. Not only did Korea have its own way of serving tea, but this book showed how events of Korean history changed the way the people served tea as time progressed. It opened my eyes to just how changing culture puts it own stamp on this universal drink called tea.
As a tea amateur I am beginning to study the various ways of serving tea in Asia. The Korean way of tea is very interesting as a study in the background of this ceremony in contrast to the better known Japanese Chado. I hope Young Koreans will take pride in this tradition instead of counting only on soft drinks consumed in haste. The Korean way of tea harks back to a more genteel age of interpersonal relations and savouring life.
A beautiful little book for anyone who loves tea and wants to discover the unique aspects of Korean tea, teaware, history and poetry. Filled with lovely photographs, the book was written by two of the foremost experts on the art and practice of tea in Korea today. It will inspire you to make a cup and settle in for a quiet, contemplative read.
Japanese Tea Ceremony is neither the first nor the best, although it is indeed the best know one in the West.
I was very pleased with both the quality of the information and the attractive presentation. I learned how tea was produced, processed, and the ceremonies behind the tea. The book is very well done, thank you.
