    "Surak's Making Tea, Making Japan is one of the most astute studies of the ceremony to appear in decades. Beyond tea aficionados, Surak's book should be read by scholars and students of culture and nationalism because Surak's main contribution is showing how these two fields of embodied culture and nationalism are so deeply intermeshed in the practice of tea.".   The success of his book led to the emergence of a shared tea culture in Japan, where all levels of Japanese society began to drink green tea and adopted it as a central part of their daily lives. Types of Japanese Green Tea. Green tea differs from black tea and other types of tea, in how the tea leaf is cultivated and processed.

    Enchanting and enigmatic, chanoyu (Japanese tea ritual) has puzzled western observers since the sixteenth century. Here is a book written by a tea practitioner that explains why over twenty million modern Japanese -- and a small but dedicated group of non-Japanese -- follow "The Way of Tea." Meticulously researched, An Introduction to Japanese Tea Ritual is clearly written and illustrated, and 4/5(1). Imported to Japan from China during the 9th century, the custom of serving tea did not become widespread until the 13th century. By the late 15th and 16th centuries, tea was ceremonially prepared by a skilled tea master and served to guests in a tranquil setting. This way of preparing tea became known as chanoyu, literally “hot water for tea.”.

      Extremist left-wing students who resented Japan’s historical aggressions towards its minorities and other countries formed this self-destructive cult in the late s. They argued that before the arrival of the Japanese, the original inhabitants (Ainus, Okinawans, ethnic Koreans) lived together in perfect harmony with nature. The tea plant was brought to Japan in the 9th century by a Buddhist monk by the name of Eichū on his return from China, where tea had been in widespread use for centuries. Eichū served the drink to an emperor not long after and an imperial decree was issued to start cultivating tea plantations in Japan.
