‘CHADO: The Way of Tea: A Japanese Tea Master’s Almanac’

By: by Sasaki Sanmi, translated by Shaun McCabe and Satoko Iwasaki

Date Posted: 2002-01-10

A translation of the Japanese classic, “Sado-saijiki,” “Chado: The Way of Tea” explores the unique and varied aspects of the Japanese tea ceremony. First published in Japanese in 1960, this beautifully written scholarly work covers all tea-related events in Japan throughout the year, serving as the central text for followers of chanoyu, the Japanese tea ceremony.

At once an almanac and encyclopedia of tea, “Chado: the Way of Tea” includes traditional contemplative poetry used during the tea ceremony, vignettes of festivals and formal occasions and reflective short essays on the subject of tea. The entry for each month contains nine parts: features, events, memorials, flowers, cakes, foods, meals, words for contemplation and meisu (utensils and related furnishings). Perfect for the tea-lover, Japanophile or anyone interested in chanoyu, “Chado: The Way of Tea” gives invaluable insight into Japan's most beloved ceremony.
