Journal du Thé
Johanna Tagada and Tilmann Wendelstein

It is said that what makes a teapot a teapot is the empty space inside. Likewise, this publication explores space—in this case, the space surrounding a cup of tea. Deeply fascinated by the palette of cultures and feelings contained within tea practices, London-based artist Johanna Tagada co-founded Journal du Thé in collaboration with longtime friend Tilmann Wendelstein. Resulting from a genuine passion and curiosity for its subject matter, the publication emphasizes tea as a cultural and social phenomenon rather than facts about brewing and varieties. With every page written and designed to remain meaningful for years to come, Journal du Thé invites the reader to explore the timeless aspects of contemporary tea culture and its power of connectedness.
