The custom of drinking tea, first for medicinal, and then largely also for pleasurable reasons,
was already widespread throughout China. In the early 9th century,
Chinese author Lu Yu wrote The Classic of Tea, a treatise on tea focusing on its cultivation and preparation.
Lu Yu's life had been heavily influenced by Buddhism, particularly the Zen–Chán school.
His ideas would have a strong influence in the development of the Japanese tea ceremony.
