A one of a kind Lao Ban Zhang ripe pu erh tea. These limited edition ripe pu erh balls has left us speechless with its supreme character.

This tea owes its quality to its origin, Lao Ban Zhang, which is one of the top echelon regions for pu erh in Yunnan. The texture thick, oily, and creamy, while it's complex aroma has notes of bourbon caramel, sweet herbs, and earthy chocolate. As it's made from wild tea leaves, this tea results in a certain tingling body sensation, that can't be described in words, but only be experienced.

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.
