David Mason: "The History & Features of the Korean Way of Tea"
After at least two years of trying, we at Morning Crane Tea are happy to present Professor David Mason, a renowned authority on Korean Culture in a live Zoom presentation on Korean tea.
Professor Mason, author of many aspects of Korean culture is perhaps the most sought-after English language speaker on Korean culture.
His lectures include inspiring and fascinating insights and he has agreed to answer questions after his presentation.
The renown Buddhist scholar Ven Hyewon co-authored the book “An Encyclopedia of Korean Buddhism” with Professor Mason. It has been said “Korean Buddhism and tea are one.”
Professor Mason’s many publications include but are not limited to:
‘Spirit of The Mountains’:
Korea's San-shin and Traditions of Mountain-Worship' (Hollym)
‘The Colors of Korean Buddhism’:
30 Icons and their Stories, overall editor and co-author (Korean Buddhism Promotion Foundation) published for the 2010 G20 Seoul Summit.
