The fine art of preparing and drinking tea has become a hallmark of Chinese civilization, handed down through the ages in China by monks and martial artists, doctors and hermits, emperors and alchemists. In his latest book, Daniel Reid explores Chinese tea in its manifold varieties, its long and colorful historical development in China, and its refinement as a mainstay of Chinese culture. He describes the principles that lie at the heart of tea culture in China, the potent medicinal properties of Chinese tea, and how to cultivate Cha Dao, the Daoist way of tea, in daily life. A central section of the book explores for the first time the alchemy of Chinese tea, an esoteric aspect of Chinese tea culture that remains unexplored by modern science but was known and cultivated in ancient China. Jin Dan, the `golden elixir of life' is the elusive essence that resides dormant within tea (as in some other plants and minerals) and can be extracted, activated and transferred to the human system to protect health, prolong life, and enhance mental performance. The author looks at how and why this works, and explains the chemical transformations that take place as well as explaining the energetic transfer that takes place when tea is prepared by a Master. Illustrated with many photographs, by Christan Janzen, the book contains detailed descriptions of many Chinese tea varieties, especially the High Mountain Oolong Tea of Taiwan, which is considered by many to be the pinnacle of perfection in both the art and alchemy of Chinese tea. The book also contains entertaining tea anecdotes from the author's 'Tea Tidings' bulletin, and a useful glossary of Chinese tea terms. Tea lovers, as well as those with an interest in tea culture, the Dao, and Chinese history and culture, will find this book an absorbing and revelatory read.

Il corso della storia del tè, come simbolo culturale e come bevanda, parte in epoche antichissime da remote montagne cinesi per perdersi nelle steppe mongoliche e solcare poi le acque di fiumi e oceani; il tè finisce così nelle mani di avventurieri o nelle navi dei mercanti, e lo si trova nella capanna di un monaco eremita come in un ricco salotto borghese. Linda Reali ci conduce lungo le tante rotte che dall’Asia fino all’odierna Europa hanno portato il tè a diventare il protagonista di una storia che interessa le epoche e i ceti più diversi. Il viaggio inizia dalla Cina ai suoi albori, quando il leggendario imperatore Shen Nong scopre il tè. La bevanda accompagna la storia della Cina imperiale e conquista anche i paesi dell’area, primo fra tutti il Giappone. Qui il tè viene sublimato in filosofia e arte, ma usato anche come strumento di potere e controllo sociale. Si diffonde presto in Tibet, Persia, Arabia e Russia lungo le Vie carovaniere e la fitta rete di canali che attraversa il Celeste impero come una linfa vitale. Essenza della spiritualità nel mondo orientale, il tè diventa il protagonista dei salotti aristocratici del XVII secolo e poi di quelli borghesi del secolo successivo, fino a divenire di uso comune in Gran Bretagna, Olanda e Germania, mentre i paesi mediterranei continuano a preferire il caffè e la cioccolata. Con il suo arrivo in Europa, il tè si veste dello sfarzo delle porcellane finissime e delle preziose scatole che custodiscono come gioielli le foglie di tè provenienti dalla Cina. Un libro per scoprire aneddoti e segreti, curiosità poco note, fino ad arrivare alle più recenti sfide commerciali e ambientali cui il tè non sfugge nel nostro mondo globalizzato. Linda Reali, oltre a raccontarci le vicende affascinanti che nei secoli hanno fatto la fortuna del tè, suggerisce ai consumatori di oggi possibili scenari futuri per una bevanda che non ha mai smesso di espandere i propri confini.

A-Ma Alchemy of Love or Playing the Glass Bead Game with Pythagoras is a historical spiritual novel set in the 17th century Macao (Macau) that follows lives and spiritual insights of settlers of this little peninsula in the middle of China. This magic place, that is rapidly growing as a center of trade offers a melting pot for the highest practice ever, the alchemy of humanity, creating an energy matrix that will change the lives of generations to come. We are transferred into the time of strong religious clashes and dogmas, and the scientific revolution, where our protagonists join the fight of the enlightened minds of the time, such as Giordano Bruno and Da-Vinci for the establishment of the New World. Through Ruben, a Portuguese Jesuit Priest who came to China to convert the Chinese into Christians, and through Ama and her family, friends, followers and enemies. Joining their attempts to learn from both Western and Eastern philosophical thought and civilization. All the events and manuscripts mentioned within the book: the Dutch attack to Macao 24th of June 1622, the Reform of the Chinese Calendar during 1630s, Father Schall’s Appointment to the Chinese Board of Mathematicians (during 1650s), Witches Hunt, and Witches Manual, etc, are carefully researched historical facts. The book uses history to create the connection between actions of the individuals that live surrounded by magic. A-Ma takes us on an exploration journey discovering the secrets of the bond we all have created during the millions of life-times on Earth, the bond of consciousness and suffering. Will Ruben manage to break this bond and enter into the world of spiritual transformation discovering his own divine potential? Will love that guides him, transform him, will his friend, guru and lover, Ama manage to break the matrix of habits, thoughts and patterns that surrounds them? Will Ama’s friends manage to reach enlightenment, will human society manage to shred the veil of dogmas that encircles it, or will the forces of Dark Ages be stronger or will Ama be prosecuted as a witch? Interspersed with graphic sketches of life in Europe and Macao in 16th century, this work presents a historic and imaginative fable of the Chinese & Portuguese way of life within this little settlement that at the time could have been a centre of spiritual progress of the Age of Reason. The book has 12 chapters, starting with the Play of the Glass Bead Game with Pythagoras and entering a Universal Portal of Consciousness to Ancient Worlds and Civilizations, Ancient Egypt, Ancient Greece, 17th Century Portugal, and China.

Tea in China explores the contours of religious and cultural transformation in traditional China from the point of view of an everyday commodity and popular beverage. The work traces the development of tea drinking from its mythical origins to the nineteenth century and examines the changes in aesthetics, ritual, science, health, and knowledge that tea brought with it. The shift in drinking habits that occurred in late medieval China cannot be understood without an appreciation of the fact that Buddhist monks were responsible for not only changing people's attitudes toward the intoxicating substance, but also the proliferation of tea drinking. Monks had enjoyed a long association with tea in South China, but it was not until Lu Yu's compilation of the Chajing (The Classic of Tea) and the spread of tea drinking by itinerant Chan monastics that tea culture became popular throughout the empire and beyond. Tea was important for maintaining long periods of meditation; it also provided inspiration for poets and profoundly affected the ways in which ideas were exchanged. Prior to the eighth century, the aristocratic drinking party had excluded monks from participating in elite culture. Over cups of tea, however, monks and literati could meet on equal footing and share in the same aesthetic values. Monks and scholars thus found common ground in the popular stimulant—one with few side effects that was easily obtainable and provided inspiration and energy for composing poetry and meditating. In addition, rituals associated with tea drinking were developed in Chan monasteries, aiding in the transformation of China's sacred landscape at the popular and elite level. Pilgrimages to monasteries that grew their own tea were essential in the spread of tea culture, and some monasteries owned vast tea plantations. By the end of the ninth century, tea was a vital component in the Chinese economy and in everyday life. Tea in China transcends the boundaries of religious studies and cultural history as it draws on a broad range of materials—poetry, histories, liturgical texts, monastic regulations—many translated or analyzed for the first time. The book will be of interest to scholars of East Asia and all those concerned with the religious dimensions of commodity culture in the premodern world.
