For those interested in the subject, check out this fascinating article from Black Belt. It contains a different outlook on samurai and their association with tea. Fascinating!

I wasn't aware of the common misconception of the Japanese tea ceremony being an "escape" from the life of war. What a load of bunk!

(Reading about the complexities of making tea reminds me of why I chose not to write about that particular topic as a kid...it was supposed to be a report, not a thesis!)
