Dear List Members:

For the past 27 years I have been a student of Japanese Tea Ceremony (Urasenke School) and have been wondering about the Korean influences on it. The recently retired Grand Master Genshutsu Sen (Hounsai, Soshitsu Sen XVI, informally (but not privately) said that he know that his ancestors had some Korean heritage. We know, too, that the fabled Raku ceramics lineage is easily traceable to Korea during the time of Hideyoshi. But there many be, for example, a Korean source of the kaiseki meal featuring 2 soups and 3 side dishes.

Daniel Burkus, an independent scholar of tea history living in Korea who traces the roots of Rikyu’s chanoyu, has written a piece about it in his blog http://chanoyu-to-wa.tumblr.com. I am wondering if anyone would like to comment / expand on his essay. In advance, thank you.
