Among the 10 most popular teas in China, there is one that shines like a precious gem: Biluochun. This extraordinary tea is grown with love and care in the majestic mountains of East Dongting and West Dongting, on the shores of the beautiful Taihu Lake, in Jiangsu Province. Its name, "Bi luo chun" in Chinese, means "the spring jade snail", and you just need to look carefully at its leaves to understand why.

Biluochun leaves are a true wonder to behold, with their rolled shape resembling a graceful snail. But it's not just the looks that make it special. When you look at tea buds, you may notice a delicate white part that shines like precious Chinese jade. It is a fascinating detail that gives this tea an aura of elegance and unique beauty.

But it's its taste that will make you fall madly in love. When you sip Biluochun, a symphony of flavors gracefully envelops you. The flavor of dried chestnuts makes its way softly, giving an enveloping sensation that takes you to a beautiful spring day. It's like savoring the sweetness and creaminess of toasted chestnuts, a warm embrace that takes you back to a moment of serenity and pleasure.

But there's more. A fruity touch dances on the tongue, adding a lively and refreshing note to this taste experience. It's like tasting a variety of ripe fruits, which are released with a juicy sweetness and vibrant freshness. Every sip is an invitation to immerse yourself in a world of taste and pleasure, to let yourself be conquered by a tea that knows how to delight and amaze the senses.

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.
