About this title


Written more than one thousand years ago, Lu Yu's book has done more than any other text to elevate tea and tea drinking to its unique place of veneration in Chinese society. This is the first complete translation that also includes an introduction to Lu Yu's life and times and to the history and significance of tea in eastern and western cultures. Demi Hitz's pen and ink sketches, along with reproductions of early Chinese paintings of tea culture and manufacture, make a distinctively beautiful book.
