As the old saying goes ‘don't judge a book by its cover’. These moonlight white balls may not look pretty, but its flavour will beat most of the pricier and prettier looking teas. In fact, we think this is one of the best white tea we’ve tasted so far this year!

The texture is smooth and creamy with an aromatic profile of ripe fruits, spices and herbal candies when steeped at high temperature, and sweet and floral when steeped at low temperatures. The tea soup is bright and clear, and has the colour of a young dessert wine. Just several sips of this tea will offer a soothing body sensation. All in all, an intriguing and highly addictive tea with lots of flavour to keep you coming back for more.

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.
