Fine tea leaves and resplendent utensils are only two elements of what is a dynamic process to fully enjoy tea. However, without skill in steeping tea, without a suitable environment to drink tea, without good spring water, without proper fire to boil water, without an understanding of tasting tea, such exquisiteness of tea leaves and utensils effectively become useless. The Ancient Art of Tea contains vital information to assist tea drinkers in their quest for yet another pot of delicious tea.

These exemplify some of the basic concepts of the philosophy of tea, which greatly enhances tea enjoyment.
