Our heartfelt thanks to Dr. Patricia Graham for an in-depth examination of Japanese sencha culture during the Edo period for the first lecture of the 7th Ocha Zanmai series on Friday evening. If you missed the lecture, be sure to check out her book "Tea of the Sages: The Art of Sencha" at your local university library. Her latest book "Japanese Design: An Illustrated Guide to Art, Architecture and Aesthetics in Japan" is being released in a new revised edition this summer.
