Description

The exhibition explores tea’s complex history and myriad of meanings – from its popularisation and globalisation connected to stories of imperialism and colonial violence, to inspiring artistic expression, cultural customs and national identities, it is simultaneously deeply personal and political.

The tea stories on show span millennia, connecting communities across the world. The exhibition’s name, 茶, चाय, Tea, (Chá, Chai, Tea) reflects the global reach of the world’s most popular drink after water, enjoyed by billions of people.

The exhibition will also consider the founding history of the Horniman Museum and Gardens itself, using wealth made through the Horniman’s Tea business.

To complement the exhibition, the Horniman will offer a series of events including tea tastings, themed family crafts, language tours of the exhibition and more.
