A humble attempt at translating Chapter 4 of Lu Yu’s Classic of Tea. This chapter describes twenty five items used in the brewing and drinking of tea. Part 2 describes items number 2 to 9. It is in this chapter that we learnt about how tea was being boiled. This is the era of “boilded tea”.
Solala Towler’s “Cha Dao” is an inspiring read, and, like a Zen master, it offers little teasers which urge one to find out more about the ideas behind the humble cup of tea. The Chinese art of tea is an amalgam of Confucianism, Daoism and Buddhism. Towler aims to lay out Daoism’s influence on this art. This book brings this ancient Chinese philosophy closer to non-Chinese readers.
