From Tea to Tao - More details about the incredible experience you can approach with the Book

I've finally made my book available in the shop on this website. It's been a long walk before I accepted to share this incredible experience I had in Taïwan with other Members of the Tea Society.


Critiques of the teas at each meeting were judged not only by physical perceptions, but also spiritual impressions. The tea society’s members include young and old, male and female.  There were also some changes of the members during the course of the tea meetings.  Besides, each person's background, history in drinking tea, body type, and current status of the body varied widely. These variables all affected the objectivity in evaluating the teas. To judge and grade tea is essentially subjective.  But between subjective opinions, there are also intersections and compliments, which provide an infrastructure of knowledge, layers of conception, spiritual realms, and creative inspiration.  These are still noteworthy and could be verified by future generations.  Those who have had similar experiences when tasting tea will find it much easier to understand and corroborate with other people’s experiences."
