"A Date with Chinese Tea
2012.08.29 – 2013.04.01
Chinese tea comes in huge varieties. The modern method of classification is based on the way tea is processed, which yields six major types - green tea, black tea, oolong tea, white tea, yellow tea and pu’er-type tea. This exhibition features different types of tea presented in different colour-coded galleries, each with artefacts and historical backgrounds to the tea-drinking practice. As you walk through the different sections, you can transcend time and space to visit the histories and tea-drinking practices of the world, such as the ancient Tea Horse Road of the Tang dynasty, the etiquette of tea-drinking in Britain, the unique tea culture of Hong Kong etc..
Complete with an education corner and various interactive games, it promises to be a wonderful journey of tea suitable for all ages."
