Join us as we dive deep into the art, craft, and history of China’s most prized teapots of Yixing and Chaozhou. We’ll delve into the historical development of these distinctive tea wares, looks at the qualities that define teapot construction and functionality, and offer insights into sourcing, selecting, seasoning, and brewing with both unique teapot styles.
As part of an ongoing series that examines the diversity of China’s tea culture, “All About Yixing & Chaozhou Teapots” will be a fully-immersive workshop and tea talk, featuring tea tasting, discussions and education on art history, and offer hands-on opportunities to brew tea and hone your teapot brewing skills. This event welcomes all, regardless of how far along you are on your tea journey; whether you’re new to tea or well-steeped, looking to find a great teapot or learning how to better brew with one you already own and love. Bringing teapots is fully encouraged, and hand-selected Yixing and Chaozhou teapots will be available on site for use and for purchase.
