The One Taste of Truth: Zen and the Art of Drinking Tea

In his new book, “The One Taste of Truth: Zen and the Art of Drinking Tea”, William Scott Wilson strips away the vanity from tea service and concentrates on the simplicity of all things tea which immediately raises the topic from simplicity to sublime. As he translates from common Chinese and Zen philosophy “found in Asia and printed on scrolls hanging scrolls in tea rooms, restaurant alcoves, family rooms, and martial arts dojos”, the reader is transported to another time and place.
