The day I first brewed my own tea

02. 09. 2018

I’ve been growing tea shrubs for years, but I haven’t been immensely successful. The shrubs are dwarfs with yellowish leaves all year long. They are in fact a second generation – the first died on me. That’s why I rarely thought of using their leaves for tea. Now my five shrubs were infested by some […]

15 years of Klasek Tea, 15 years with Goomtee

29. 08. 2018

It’s been fifteen years that we brought our first tea. There wasn’t much of it. Fifteen kilos, I reckon. In fact, it was a test for us to see how it’s done and if it is possible. And it was. The tea was great. The whole batch was bought by the Chajovna tea room in […]

24. 07. 2018

As soon as we entered the small darkened room where tea leaves whithered, we absorbed unbeliavably sweet heady aroma of exotic flowers. Tea leaves were laying there in many levels of bamboo mats, the air was vibrating and we got a dizzy spell from its intensity. Every time I put a cup of Baozhong tea […]

Mirka and wood-fired porcelain clay

18. 05. 2018

Mirka and her “new chapter” with porcelain clay inspired us to ask her few questions. Mirka, you have started to work with porcelain clay. Is that something new or a kind of a return to the roots? A bit of both, probably. Porcelain is not a new material for me, but not a return to the roots, either. […]

Tile master and Potter Martin Hadrava

23. 04. 2018

Lives in Klikov, South Bohemia. This is a transcription of the words that Martin wrote about himself after making a deal and drinking some tea with us. He said he had to do it fast because later on he would not get to it anymore. He took a pen, sat at a table and started […]
