Tea brewing and the art of immersion

"A life with tea" originates in a personal and in-depth encounter with the ancient tradition, which in the East is called Chadao, 'the way of tea'. We move here into the wide-ranging world of tea and the close connection this culture has with meditation. You will be guided in some of the traditional tea-brewing methods in a down-to-earth, yet poetic way.

In addition to a practical feel for tea brewing and the tools to navigate this complex process, you will get an introduction to the many varieties of tea and their production. Next, the book provides reflections on how tea can be used as an element to develop and refine a calm and sincere state of mind. Tea has its philosophical roots in Zen Buddhism and Taoism, and here too the connection between meditation and tea is found.

There is a tea for every situation and every individual. The most important thing is the inner journey you embark on when you choose to open up to your sensory impressions and dive into the present and flexible world of tea.
