Tea has played a significant role in Chinese culture for thousands of years. Not only is it a staple beverage, but the manner and means of how it is served are important rituals carried out across Chinese society. Showcasing the collection of Hamiltonian Andrew Chan, this exhibition presents one aspect of Chinese tea culture; the Yixing Zisha teapots.

Yixing is a region of the Jiangsu Province in central-eastern China where the Zisha teapots are produced. Made from the region’s special Zisha clay, the most prized and valuable teapots are handmade by skilled artists using traditional tools.

A handmade teapot is unique to any other and will, through use, develop its own character to enhance the flavour, colour and aroma of the tea to be enjoyed. To a tea connoisseur, this could mean that the teapot will only ever serve one type of tea for its entire life.
