An introduction to “life hacking,” Urawaza is a Japanese term referring to unlikely solutions to common problems – like buffing your fingernails with a receipt. While many of these tricks refer to home life, many also deal with problems of a more social nature, like how to stop falling over when the bus you’re on grinds to a halt, or how to stop body odor with something more effective than the hippie deodorant you’ve been using. One of the most satisfying things about this book comes from its light-duty lateral thinking – even if you don’t get around to employing one of these solutions, you’ve already started to think about the situation in a different way.

There’s a world of difference between the tea you brew at work to power through an assignment and the stuff you make at home, using your favorite infuser, mug, fixings, and pairing with a pastry. This book provides a healthy serving of factual knowledge about the beverage – from how it’s cultivated and fermented to caffeine content and antioxidant properties – but it’s equally invested in more abstract qualities of the drink. The New Tea Book focuses on the ritual of tea drinking and how it informs our daily routine and creates space for contemplation and relaxation. Featuring information on tea varieties as well as recipes for chai and pastries, this book aims to inform your own tea-drinking customs.
