In celebration of the year of the pig, Dayi has created this 'Brother, the Wind Rises' cake with a beautiful wrapper. This tea cake offers a red and thick tea soup with a caramel sweet fragrance.

The Wind Rises

If there's a pu erh tea, that's worth to own, just for its theme, it might be this one. Though the Dayi Factory doesn't confirm this explicitly, the name of this cake is likely inspired by the Japanese animation movie 'The Wind Rises'. The themes of enduring love and friendship, even during difficult times, are express through the design and taste of this cake:

"As time passes, throughout the journey of our lives, there's you and me, mellow and sweet."

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.
