Written in four parts, the book comprises: an exploration of the history of tea and tea-drinking; a detailed explanation of the methods of cultivating, picking and processing tea, and a description of the characteristics of the six main tea 'families'; the secrets of making the perfect cup of tea; a collection of recipes for healing teas to help you lose weight, cure colds, reduce blood pressure, and boost your energy.

This may sound weird but there are quite a few books out there on Tea. This one is Chinese in perspective and is written by a expert in Chinese culture and exercise. I have Km Chuen Lam books on Energy and Standing Mediation as well, and found this even better than expected! You can find his standing meditation videos on You Tube.

I have learned a lot about consumption and preparation of tea in the Way of Tea. Not really something I have thought about too much, but lately I have been craving tea and got sort of on a tea kick. In some of the martial arts I attended we would have tea after class, and this is where I learned that there are lots of teas out there.

Much of the book is fun reading: Where tea is thought to have originated, tea in cultures, and of course how to select, brew and enjoy tea. My Wife actual knew some of the info already, but we both learned fun facts and have enjoyed the book.

The one ceremony I will always cherish is the teachings by the author of Tea Time Kung Fu Tea. I have spent countless mornings duplicating the teachings of the masters so that I can enjoy every aspect of tea.

The more I learned by doing the better my tea tasted. Overlook these teachings and you will miss one of the most relaxing and joyful ceremonies about life in its simplicity.

The Way of Tea is the way to harmony in life.

Reading the book with a trained eye, it becomes apparent that the writer did not actually intimately know tea at the time of writing the book.

What he has done is to expertly pick information from other sources and blend it together. Mostly this has worked well and the information is actually accurate. However, many times the information is vague, and some of it is just plain wrong. The latter is particularly damning as a reader not already versed in tea cannot tell when this happens.

For example, it seems the author has read from one source that the chinese group tea into six color classes: white, yellow, green, light green, red and black. He then goes on to discuss these classes. Unfortunately, he has got light green and black just plain wrong. In the first place, light green teas are more commonly known as semi-fermented, blue-green teas or oolongs. However, the author claims that "Oolong" is just a particular instance of a "light green" tea, on the same level as for example "Tie Guan Yin". Apparently the author didn't find much information on Chinese black teas (in reality post-fermented dark teas such as Pu Erh, which the author categorizes as green) as little is said of them, but of the two examples he cites one is actually a tisane, not from the Camellia Sinensis plant at all and the other is a red tea. Which brings to mind the odd choice of examples of red teas, which suddenly jump from the otherwise used China to India with Darjeeling and Nilgiri as examples.

Further diminishing the usefulness of the book is the choice of romanization style for the Chinese teas and terms. Being greeted with teas such as T'ieh Kuan-yin, and Chün Shan Yin Chin, one wanting to try them may run into trouble because virtually every seller romanizes them as Tie Guan Yin and Yun Shan Yin Zhen.

The book contains very interesting folklores related to Asian teas and introduced some of the author's favorites. Kam gives a brief introduction to few of the finest teas in the world, and much on the popular teas. Then an interesting tea ceremony. Although at some points I don't agree with the author, I do recommend this book to whoever interested in teas. A pleasure to read.

The book was in good condition and arrived quick enough. I were happy to get it, had been reading it on a tea shop.

I was very pleased the The Way of Tea. I have learned so much from the history and overview. I had the pleasure of taking a tea class from a great new spot in NYC (Radiance Tea) and it was nice to know a little going in. I strongly recommend this book for anyone who wants to know more about the art of tea drinking.

This book lays out the main categories of tea, history, and important cultural tea ceremonies. A must-have for the Kung Fu tea ceremony.
