An afternoon tea like you've never experienced before Anne Norman will read poems and excerpts from her book Curiosi-tea ably hijacked by Camellia Cha.

An afternoon of hilarious spontanei-tea, ostensibly focused on tea... well it starts in antiqui-tea, ends in infini-tea and has a great deal of frivoli-tea and immorali-tea in between...

 

Readings and tea tastings will be interspersed by music performed on shakuhachi with guest artists and tea friends. Including a tasting of teas from China, Japan and Taiwan.

August 22nd : Music of the Tea Lands

music Of The TealandsFrom the subtle. ethereal qualities of the Japanese shakuhachi and the extraordinary birdlike sounds of the Chinese flute, to the complex and beautiful Carnatic music of southern India, an exquisite night of music from the lands of Sencha, Oolong and Chai.

Shakuhachi player, Anne Norman launched her new book Curiosi-Tea with a repertoire of Japanese music and ceremony, with dancing from Susan Taylor and Philip Flavin on the Shamisen; bewitching flute playing from Dong Qiu Ming; and from India the Iyer Brothers played the veena with mridangam player Sridar Chary.
