Museum of Tea Ware's "Yuanyang" exhibition extended


The well-received "Yuanyang: An Exhibition of Coffee and Tea Vessels" has had its run at the Flagstaff House Museum of Tea Ware extended to February 13, 2004.

The exhibition has already attracted some 82,000 visitors since opening on February 12.

Organised to foster an understanding of tea-drinking culture in Hong Kong and the appreciation of ceramic art, the exhibition illustrates the background and characteristics of three popular local beverages - "Yuanyang" (a mixture of black tea, milk and coffee), as well as tea and coffee themselves.

It also features over 100 coffee and tea vessels and ceramic sculptures specially designed by 46 noted Hong Kong artists.

These vessels and sculptures run the gamut from naturalistic and geometric to abstract sculptural and even avant-garde forms. They are further embellished with elements of painting, calligraphy or engraving.

Many topics pertinent to tea, tea ware, teahouse and coffee are covered in text and picture displays: The Origin of Chinese Teahouses, A Brief History of the Development of Chinese Teahouses and Restaurants in Hong Kong, Modernistic Chinese Teahouses, Essential Tea Vessels, The Enchanting Pu'er, Tea Goes to the West, Tea Book, The Legend of Coffee, Coffee Cups, Vacuum-pot Brewing, Utensils for Coffee Making, What is Yuanyang?, and Artists' Perspectives of Yuanyang.

The Museum of Tea Ware is located at 10 Cotton Tree Drive, Central, Hong Kong (inside Hong Kong Park). It is open from 10am to 5pm daily and is closed on Tuesdays. Admission is free. For more information, please visit the Museum of Tea Ware's website at or call 2869 0690.
