A Tea Journey: From the mountains to the table


From Saturday 6 July to Sunday 22 September 2019, twenty four objects from the Chitra Collection – our largest loan to date – will be on public display in A Tea Journey: From the mountains to the table, a new exhibition in the award-winning gallery of Compton Verney, Warwickshire.

Dedicated to the evolution of tea-drinking across time and continents, the exhibition explores tea’s impact on the world through 150 objects, with several commissions from contemporary artists. Alongside teawares from the Chitra Collection, many of which are shown to the public for the first time, visitors can expect to delve into tea’s history through paintings, tea-tasting, a Japanese teahouse and poetry.
