The World Of Tea


You got the whole world in your hands.  My tea set up comprises of the following:

1.  Japan Nambu Tekki cast iron tetsubin kettle.

2.  Taiwan purion teapot. This teapot is sitting on a vintage Chinese porcelain plate where the owner had etched the family surname 'Lu" on the surface of the plate.

3.  Teacups; blue ones made In Frankfurt, Germany while the green ones are Korean celadon teacups.  

4. Coasters are made from rattan; handwoven in Lombok, Indonesia.

5.  Tea is a  2008 pu erh tea cake from Yiwu, Yunnan. This was a special order cake from teashop in Malaysia.  The teashop owner had even got his tea calligraphy friends to help design the wrapper of the tea cake.  Tea had been stored in Malaysia for more than 12 years. 

This is my adventure in every cup.
