The Korean Way of Tea is a delightful introduction to the history of tea in China and Korea, the ways in which it is cultivated and prepared, and the Korean tea ceremony. The book is also filled with beautiful pictures and traditional poems about tea. The descriptions in the book are very true to how it is served in 미황사, where I am currently staying. This book has inspired me to go to 인사동 before I fly home and buy my own tea set so that I can enjoy the practice of making Korean tea in the US!

I was privileged to attend an event in July 2015 at the Korean Cultural Centre presented by Brother Anthony and Tea Master Hyoam (효암 선생님), the two authors of this book. 효암 선생님 performed the Korean zen-tea ceremony and Brother Anthony gave an illustrated talk on the history and current practice of the Korean way of tea.

This book is a wonderful complement to that talk.

For any tea lover looking to learn more about Korean tea, there are really no good sources in English for you to turn to, besides this book. It is a major bonus that this book is incredibly entertaining, and filled with information and eye catching pictures.
