Journal du Thé
Journal du Thé (JdT) invites the reader to explore contemporary tea
culture. Created and edited by Johanna Tagada and Tilmann S.
Wendelstein, Journal du Thé wonders what is it that makes tea into this
force which lets us slow down and grants serene moments to our lives. It
is said, that what makes a teapot a teapot is the empty space inside.
Likewise this publication sets out to explore space – in this case the
space surrounding a cup of tea. With a curious and playful eye, Journal
du Thé investigates the palette of cultures and feelings contained within
tea practices and their power to overcome borders. For us, tea is a
symbol of togetherness.
