A superior grade Silver Needle white tea with a delicate and soft texture, complex aroma of white flowers, and a sweet after taste of rock sugar.

This white tea from Fujian province consisting of young unopened buds with white velvet fuzz. This tea belongs to one of China's top ten most famous teas. The leaves of our Silver Needle tea are harvested in the early Spring season under optimal conditions. Therefore, it's only produced in very small quantities. The leaves undergo minimal processing (mainly withering and sun-drying) so that the young buds maintain its high concentration of antioxidants, while being very low in caffeine.

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.
