Jie Chen grew up in a tea production area in China, where the traditional tea ceremony was part of everyday life; when she came to the Netherlands she brought her own tea set with her. “Having tea with different people in different places makes the tradition more dynamic,” she says. This is why she designed Mosey: a stackable tea set that you can easily bring to the park, the office or a friend’s house. Protected by the textile wrap and leather shoulder bag, the earthenware tea set can be safely transported. On arrival, the tea mat in the special compartment on the side transforms any surface into an instant tea table.
