just as tea has been a drink for sages, emperors and all classes of people from ancient times til now, so has the teahouse been a place for all people.
from the solitary hermitage to the social gathering places of the rich and poor, teahouses have acted as a bridge into the cultures of the far east.
they are gateways into philosophy, history and traditions, health, political and social interaction, and all of the arts from the visual to the written and performing arts.
in essence, teahouses have been bridges between people, connecting hearts and minds.
artist, andrew binkley, offers a glimpse into this world through photographic prints taken from his soon to be released book china teahouse, which features over 500 photographs, spanning 300 pages and covering 21 teahouses in 10 locations throughout China.
