This is not a book about tea. It is more about the history of teaism, an ancient philosophy, and the author's thoughts about how it compares to current ways of living. He does view western ways critically. However, i enjoy learning about others varying beliefs and cultures. You will also learn some asian history, again, as presented through the understanding and views of the author. I did learn some history of how tea was presented. I would reccomend if you enjoy tea and would like a light read on teaism. Cheers
