Abstract

The Tea Sniffing Blind Men is one of nine kyōgen plays featuring a blind man as shite (main character). It is unique in that it presents a formal community of the blind rather than two or three characters, and shows them conducting a rather unconventional tea ceremony. The characters make up the category of plays known as zatō mono in the Izumi School, and shukke zatō in the ōkura School.
