My new book is now available, it is called Tea in the Garden: Tea Leaves and Cherry Blossoms. The book provides a glimpse into the enchanting world of the Japanese tea culture and especially the pretty sakura. Sakura is Japanese for cherry blossom! Japan is famous for its green teas and the book looks at the different tea regions, it touches on bonsai, ikebana flower arranging, the tea house garden and it would not be a tea book without exploring The Way of Tea. The Way of Tea is deeply steeped in Buddhist philosophies, when one experiences tea in Japan they are closer to enlightenment.
