Way of Tea

Chinese, Indian Chai and Turkish tea.

I wrote a paper for International Financial Stability on the Indian tea trade.

My favorite tea at the moment is the lapsang souchong tea I bought from the Boston Tea Party Museum. It is a very smoky black tea.

Dedicated to my dear friend, Kathleen Morrill.

I tried my best to get rid of the glare but alas here is the painting.

The Terracotta General – 2013

In honor of my parent’s visit to Shanghai and Beijing this spring, I painted my mother’s favorite part of the trip; the terracotta army. The background was doused with tea and coffee.
