Kyoto Journal Devotes Entire Issue To Tea: 30 Contributors Cover Tea Culture From A Dozen Nations
(from a press release)

Kyoto Journal, the award-winning English-language arts and culture quarterly published in Japan, has devoted its entire upcoming issue to the subject of tea. The Oakland, California-based nonprofit Tea Arts Institute (TAI) is the guest editor, and TAI invited writers, artists, photographers and tea professionals to contribute. The issue, KJ 71, will be available January 15.

The articles touch on all aspects of tea, from 18th century Japan, 9th century China and 16th century Mongolia and Russia, as well as contemporary pieces from Laos, Burma, Taiwan, Sri Lanka, India, Tibet, Vietnam, France, Hong Kong and the USA. Book, film and theater reviews, along with some fiction and poetry, complement the features. The issue was designed and produced by A/M Studios.

The 96 page, four-color, perfect bound KJ 71 is $12 copy and is available online from Teance and through many tea retailers and bookstores. Subscriptions are available directly from Kyoto Journal.
