Street chaxi Taiwan

by Bok » May 6th 17 3:28 pm

If you are thinking that gong fu tea in Taiwan involves beautiful setups and teaware think again - this is how people actually have their tea here! Took this shot down south in Tainan on the street. You can see lots of variations of this topic in many corners of the country.

The small buy-everything-shops are full of the crappy teaware items you see them use: cheesy flowery pots, dubious "yixing" in fancy shapes and so on.

Anyways, just a little something I thought I'd share :)

Cool very interesting. Hey, what is that large shinny metal dome thing on the far left with a kettle hovering ontop?

Not sure, but I think it is part of the kitchen stuff they use, it was in front of a small restaurant.

Because it is a part of their daily life, they do not need to pay attention too much?
