In 2016 the Haiwan released its Four Seasons tea cake series under its Old Comrade brand. These cakes are exceptionally famous because no new cakes have been pressed ever since the first release.

Autumn Frost

Crafted as part of the Four Season collection, the Qiu Shuang Autumn Frost tea cake captures the essence of the fall season. According to Haiwan, this tea is best enjoyed on a cozy autumn day, allowing one to reflect on the past, present, and future.

Haiwan's Autumn Poem

There's a wonderful poem on the label of the cake, which is beautifully explains the philosophy of the cake. We recommend to enjoy reading this poem while drinking this ripe pu erh:


Autumn Frost

The Autumn waters and the vast sky appear to be the same color, and all manifestations of nature makes everything so vast.

As the Northern geese return to the south, the mountains are all covered in red, while the forest and rivers are layered with frost.

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.
