A little bit of History about tea from 1422-1502.

The Japanese tea ceremony emerges onto the scene. First created by a Zen priest named Murata Shuko, the ceremony is called Cha-no-yu, literally meaning “hot water tea” and celebrates the mundane aspects of everyday life.

Tea’s status elevates to an art form and almost a religion.

In 1484 Japan’s shogun Yoshimasa encourages tea ceremonies, painting, and drama.

 “Tea is the elixir of life.” – Eisai, Kissa Yojoki

Eisai, the father of Japanese tea, was a Buddhist monk who brought Zen Buddhism and tea from China in the late 12th century.
