Ever since the first sip of tea was enjoyed by men, special attention has been given to the vessels that we serve them in. From the practical to the aesthetical reasons, the best tea requires the best tea wares to realise its full potential.
Meet Whye Kee of Qi Pottery. Part potter, part tea enthusiast, he regularly host tea sessions in his home studios. Sessions with his fellow tea lovers are always fun filled and rewarding, with sharings about how the tea flavour could be enhanced with different teawares.
The pieces he create are almost a reflection of his personality - simple, yet refined; unpretentious and practical. Some of them are even created with decades-old Singapore clay, specially stashed away by his mentor!
For those seeking something extra special, do consider getting your hands dirty in a pottery course with him!
