Wu zi Deng Ke Meaning

The legendary tale of "Wu Zi Deng Ke" has been passed down for centuries and now serves as a well-known greeting and symbol of good luck in China. The story originated during the Five Dynasties period when Dou Yu Jun, a man from Yan Shan, had five incredibly talented sons who all became scholars. This remarkable achievement is celebrated in the "Three Character Canon三字经", which praises Dou Yu Jun's ability to teach his sons so well.

Dayi's Wu Zi Deng Ke

Now, this storied legacy has inspired the creation of a tea known as "Wu Zi Deng Ke". Made from hand-selected ripe pu erh tea from Menghai county and delicately crafted using Taetea processing technology, this teacake boasts a perfectly round shape and evenly distributed tea leaves with a vibrant yellow-green hue. Once brewed, it releases a bright yellow liquid with a refreshing and mellow taste, infused with a subtle astringency and a long-lasting sweet aftertaste. Savor the flavor and history of "Wu Zi Deng Ke" with every sip.

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.
