cai’s tea house…

Have blogged about this individual before see here, Cai Dongdong (formerly Weidong) is a Chinese artist just coming to the end of his 4 month residence here, his work has changed a lot during this time…OK so am a little obsessed with his tea house, it was a real luxury to take a break from the intensity of the last few days inside his installation… just to sit quietly and watch the rituals…the cleaning of the tiny cups…the brewing of the tea… i tried many different kinds of tea over these days, my favourite was the one we tried in this film, its called pu er which comes in the form of a giant tea cake. It’s old…10 years old and smoky in flavour…

This is pi xu, you spin the coin in his mouth to bring you money…
