The name of this tea 'Wu Gu Feng Deng' (五谷丰登) is a Chinese saying which describes a 'prosperous harvest'. During old times, great harvest years are celebrated and remembered. In modern times, this saying may have less meaning, but with the older Chinese generations, it brings back memories of abundant years during periods of hardship.

Inspired by such emotions, the Xiaguan Tea Factory presents a tea cake with leaves harvested during the golden autumn season, when at the same time grains are harvested. Raw material from ancient Yunnan mountains are used, and skill-fully blended and processed by Xiaguan's tea masters.

This raw tea cake appears very fine with visible silvery tea buds and the surface has this deliciously slightly glossy look. Its taste is thick and smooth, and reveals the true taste of an 'Golden Autumn'.

Our design work is inspired by the artwork “Along the River During the Qingming Festival” by the Zhang Zeduan in the Song Dynasty. Instead of displaying the daily lives of people in the capital of China (as the original artwork), we display the tea making process of farmers through the same bird’s eye perspective.

When examining our packaging design in detail, tea enthusiasts will observe the tea making process, featuring tea farmers picking, drying, rolling, and frying tea leaves. The tea is then tasted in a pavilion and transported by horses along the ‘ancient tea road’.

Together, the traditional Chinese landscape and tea making theme, symbolise heritage, tradition, and respect for hard work of tea farmers.
