From the introduction: "This book is a compilation of my insights, observations, and experiences over a fourteen-year period--from formal and informal trainings and apprenticeships in the United States and in China, but most importantly, from making tea for myself in the privacy of my own home, sitting, sometimes for hours, in the ritual space I had created."

Cinnabar: "After meeting and speaking with Frank Hadley Murphy, I acquired and read this book on the plane on the way back from the 2010 World Tea Expo. I thoroughly enjoyed the way that Murphy describes and defines his experiences with tea, and I heartily recommend this book to anyone who enjoys tea culture and effective writing."
