Textualised: Ceramic Exhibition at Teakha
Why We Recommend it
“Textualised” shines light on the importance of the drinking vessel on the taste and experience of drinking tea, showcasing intricately-made ceramics by artists Amanda Tong and Calvin Chan.
Plantation by teakha, a contemporary teahouse in Sai Ying Pun, is presenting “Textualised”, an exhibition that studies the importance of the drinking vessel on the taste and experience of drinking tea. The exhibition features works by local artists Amanda Tong and Calvin Chan.
Different materials can affect and enhance the taste and texture of teas. The right vessel changes and influences the tea-drinking experience aesthetically, textually, and scent, touch and taste-wise. Drinking a high-quality tea in a paper cup destroys the subtle nuances of a good tea, while drinking through the right vessel can elevate the experience greatly.
A well-made glass cup can be a joy to look at with the changing colours of each pour of tea. A thick rimmed clay cup can add a raw, soothing feeling to the lips, while a Zi Sha teapot over time can enhance the flavours of tea.
“Textualised” offers viewers an opportunity to learn more about how different materials can affect tea and the tea-drinking experience. For more on tea, a panel discussion and tea tasting session with artists Amanda Tong and Calvin Chan will be held on 14 December, 2019.
