This vintage-style, canvas print is inspired by The Book of Tea by Okakura Kakuzo. The perfect addition to any dining space or gift for your favorite tea lover.
"The philosophy of tea is not a simple aesthetic in the ordinary meaning of the term, for it allows us to express, together with ethics and religion, our entire concept of man and nature. It is a form of hygiene because it requires us to be clean; it is an economy, for it shows us that well-being lies in simplicity rather than in complexity and expenditure; it is moral geometry, for it defines our size in relation to the universe. Finally, it represents the true democratic spirit of the Far East in that it transforms all its enthusiasts into aristocrats of taste."
