Thank you for visiting our new website and photo blog! As a start, we thought it fitting to talk about creation story.
So much has changed since Jaq and I started Pekoe & Imp on a whim in 2013. On a random day, we decided we wanted to share teas in a methodological, exploratory and non-judgemental way, just the way we like it. That very night, we came up with the name. One month later, we popped up for a fortnight with a tasting event at Atomi, a Japanese boutique furniture shop in Mandarin Gallery. A tea workshop followed shortly at Broer's cafe. And just like that, Pekoe & Imp started.
Since then, we traveled to Tea producing regions to learn about its origins. We visited Tea Establishments to learn about new concepts in tea service. Along the way, we gleaned knowledge and acquired experiences from talking to people of all sorts, who helped to shape our ideas about tea.
We brought back our tea finds and insights, and shared them in our workshops. In turn, our guests showed us new perspectives of tea appreciation.
Fast forward to 2016. Its been a year since Jaq sadly left to pursue other interest. Pekoe & Imp has evolved since, but always holding on to the desire to share good teas with an open mind.
Our future photo blog posts will share about all things tea, from random musings, to tea drinking notes, and tea experiences. We hope to learn more in the process, together with everybody else who share the same love for teas.
