The original Tea Party I: Slow and Flow was launched in 2012 by Taiwanese brand Lin’s Ceramics Studio and design studio Qiao, and defined as a tea culture performance combining tradition with fashion. It incorporated eight art forms —floristry, calligraphy, painting, drama, music, and spatial, graphic and industrial design —challenging classic tea ceremony stereotypes and addressing a younger audience in their own language. More than 50 performances were given in Asia and as far away as Paris.

Tea Party is supported by a strong cross-disciplinary ‘creative capital’ of producer, director and designers. A whole team of creatives have been engaged as tea-bartenders, furniture, lighting and space designers, tea set and other object designers, interactive and graphic experts, costume designers, musicians, photographers, cinematographers and stylists.
