A Decent Cup of Tea
by Malachi McCormick
Clarkson Potter, New York, 1991
ISBN#: 0-517-58462-X

A very personal book written by a person in search of a decent cup of tea. "We can survive functional illiteracy or shattered windows of vulnerability, but not the demise of The Decent Cup of Tea."

All the Tea in China
by Kit Chow & Ione Kramer

The book on Chinese tea for western people. Long descriptions of the 50 most popular teas in China, plus history, maps, charts, tables, lists of names in different languages. Somewhat like a non biographical updating of "The Chinese Art of Tea." The availability of quality tea in America has changed over the last 10 years and this is reflected in this book. It has updated mail order lists. Some export statistics on China tea can be found on page xv.

Art, Tea, and Industry: Masuda Takashi and the Mitsui Circle.
by C.M. Guth.
Princeton University Press (1993)

Cloth: 248 pages. 0-691-03206-8 $29.95
Cloth in UK: L23.00; in Europe: $34.50
In this illustrated book Christine Guth examines the intimate relationship between art collecting, the tea ceremony, and business through the activities of Masuda Takashi (1848-1938), the highly charismatic director of the Mitsui conglomerate whose opulent life and passionate pursuit of art continue to influence new generations of aspiring business magnates in Japan. An elaborate social ritual in which the worlds of business and art collecting intersected, the tea ceremony guided Masuda in amassing the finest collection of Sino-Japanese art in the early Japanese industrial era. Guth's exploration of his aesthetic ideas deepens our understanding of not only the formation of the canon of Japanese art but also the role of art in the ideology of early modern Japan.
At a time when there were few art museums in Japan and Japanese art was becoming internationally known, Masuda's tea gatherings functioned as a salon where his colleagues, other collectors, and art dealers could view, discuss, and handle works of art. Under his influence, art collecting and mastery of the tea ceremony became integral parts of the business training and activities of Mitsui executives. Masuda's collection was rich in calligraphy, ink painting, lacquer, and ceramics, but it was especially noted for its Buddhist painting and sculpture. These works, which were dispersed after World War II, are now in museums and private collections throughout Japan and the United States.
Christine M. E. Guth received her Ph.D. in Fine Arts from Harvard University. She is the author of Shinzo: Hachiman Imagery and Its Development (Harvard) and coauthor, with Julia Meech, of Japanese Prints from the Matsukata Collection (Rutgers).



Culinary Tea (Cynthia Gold):

What a fine collection of recipes and information on the historical and contemporary uses of tea as food. Cynthia Gold inspires not only the reader to try tea in new ways as an ingredient in dishes, but also invites chefs around the world to reignite the passion for tea as food and to take it in new directions. As such, Cynthia contributes much to the growing information on tea and tea culture around the world. Here is a more in-dephth review of Culinary Tea by Bon Teavant.

Taking Tea with Clarice Cliff/Leonard Griffin
by Clarice Cliff/Leonard Griffin

The designs of Clarice Cliff are among the most striking and collectable ceramics produced in the 20th century. Angular and uncompromising, embellished in strident primary colors, they were a sensation when they appeared in the 1920s, capturing the spirit of the Art Deco movement. Her teaware is as sought after today as it was then, her most collected designs, such as her Bizarre ware, commanding high prices. This beautifully photographed book evokes the mood of the Art Deco era as it conveys the enormous charm and range of Cliff's work in china tea services. It offers a complete record of her teaware designs as well as a fascinating look at her life and work. Pavilion Books, London

The World in a Bowl of Tea: Healthy, Seasonal Foods Inspired by the Japanese Way of Tea
by Bettina Vitell

This unusual book offers an intriguing and readable introduction to the Japanese tea ceremony and the foods that accompany it, what is called Kaiseki cuisine. Former chef Vitell (A Taste of Heaven and Earth, LJ 8/93) is now an assistant at the San Francisco branch of an international school of tea. In spare, elegant prose, perfectly suited to her subject, she describes the ceremony and the refined dishes that are part of it (she likens Kaiseki to the best California cuisine, but without its overelaborate presentations). Among her recipes are Baby Artichokes with Pomegranate Vinaigrette and Glaze-Grilled Salmon with Ginger. Recommended for larger cookbook collections as well as for any library where there is a special interest in Japanese culture. Copyright 1997 Reed Business Information, Inc.
