The Book of Tea, since its first publication in the US in 1906, has been functioned as an introduction to aesthetic and cultural aspects of Japanese life. It elucidates the Japanese tea ceremony's relationship with Zen, Taoism, Kado, and, more broadly, through a discussion of Japanese aesthetic principles, the essence of art and the true meaning of life.
Okakura Kakuzo (1863 –1913, 岡倉天心 Okakura Tenshin) was a Japanese scholar who

professor Ernest Fenollosa, he became one of the founders of Tokyo School of Fine Arts,
and a year later became its head. Invited by William Sturgis Bigelow, he became the first
head of the Asian art division at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston in 1910.
