Time for Tea


The exhibition transports you around the world to various tea cultures. Service, bowls, teapots and tea-caddies are evidence of the extraordinary journey that tea has taken over the centuries. From China, the cradle of tea, to Japan; and from the Far East to England and the Netherlands. The story is completed by an 18th century comic strip, a Japanese tea house and an authentic ‘tea cupola’. The exhibition has been decorated entirely by hand.
