    Tea Reception with Botanical & Chinese Essences (by GP Deva 香華天) Transformed every Drinker into Art Actionist on 2014 Art Revolution Taipei!

    In 2014 A.R.T. the visitors enjoyed Chinese tea during the exhibition, including Pu-er tea dated to over 100 years, brew black tea made of tea leaves from 400 year-old Pu-er tree with special skill, and Oolong tea brew and dried with longan wood.

    The tea cup is famous Nine-Dragon Emperor cup since China Qing Dynasty (清朝), when only royal family members could use this kind of cup. So people believe that drinkers who use this kind of cup are blessed with spirits of fortune.

    GP Deva sponsored this tea reception activity full of Chinese culture and spirit during the whole art fair; this Taiwan based company aims at sharing pure 100% botanical products, fine arts with Chinese spirit yet modern way to a global dimension.
