Snapshots from a day with Vesper Chan, pu’erh tea master. Super thank you to Tim for making this happen ^_^
Vesper invented the dry storage method…
…which you can read more about here.
How exquisite are these yixing pots?
Teaware is just as important as the tea itself.
Vesper runs a retail space downstairs, but this hidden upstairs space is his private “hobby” room.
And! Drinking tea from glasses (including wine glasses and whiskey snifters) might be trendy in US and Europe…but they’ve been doing this for centuries in Asia ^_^
