A ripe pu erh tea cake made from a blend of premium tea leaves harvested from only wild tea gardens located at 2000m+ elevation. The dry tea cake is well compressed, easy to pry (loosen up), and shows visible golden buds.

It offers a thick, chocolate milk like texture with an incredibly satisfying aroma profile of moss, pine, brown sugar and toast. Such intense and complex flavours can only be experienced with cakes made from high mountain material in combination with excellent blending skills.

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.
