Abstract: Chinese tea culture in Singapore is not common and comparable to the ones at other foreign countries like Taiwan and China. Even though people are becoming more health conscious, many still continued to go kopi1 drinking despite its known harmful effects. On the other hand, from my observation of our daily lives, Chinese tea is generally more common among the older generations. It is sometimes labelled as the ‘old people drink’ by the younger generations. Tea beverages may be common in Singapore, however I felt that the spirit and essence of tea making could only be understood through Chinese tea. The true intentions behind Chinese tea making have always been overlooked. How can I promote and increase the awareness of Chinese tea without losing its purity? This paper will discuss how the focus on Chinese moral principles and my interpretation of the principles into artwork can bring Chinese tea making to another level of tea appreciation.
