Brewing Tea, Brewing Conversations

When one thinks of Chinese tea, what instantly pops up in our mind might be a slow image of traditionally-clothed waitresses serving tea to tasters. Lee would like to redefine and bring into light this special tea culture that Hong Kong can offer to the world. In our ever-bustling city, a reinvented tea stall may be a unique chilling place to soothe your mind. It is a Hong Kong-style alternative to the cozy cafe where you goof your afternoon away and sip your coffee. In the project, young ceramic artist Joe Chan is working with Lee on casting the tea ware. They are working together on the mould design, with the aid of 3D printing. Lee’s mobile tea bar is a self-service counter that welcomes people to gather around and chat freely over a cup of tea. It leads us to reconsider the tea culture as a social and communicative behaviour.
