part 1 of the québec teaware competition: the ‘teacup and teapot’ winner

This year the Camellia Sinensis Tea House in Quebec, ran a ceramics competition to find the best, locally made tea-ware.  As part of their prize package the winners got to have their ceramic creations stocked in the Camellia Sinensis Tea House and featured on their website. I love that these guys support their local potters and artisans and help further develop the already rich Quebec tea culture.

There were a three of different categories in this tea-ware competition:

  1. teapot and teacup
  2. chawan
  3. art and innovation

In the “teapot and teacup” category the first prize went to France Turcotte, the judges loved her “harmonious blend of functionality and esthetic”

I’ll be featuring the winners of the other categories over the next week or two, stay tuned!

A huge Merci beacoup! goes out to Kevin and François from Camellia Sinensis for sharing these photos with me. You can also read an interview I did with Kevin here, in this interview he talks about buying black tea, tea culture in Quebec and about his favorite tea memories.
