An extraordinary green tea, which enchants the senses with its enveloping sweetness, seductive roasting and inebriating richness of nutty notes. It comes from the famous village of Mei Jia Wu, located in the magical Dragon Well region of West Lake, a place where the thousand-year history of tea blends with the wild beauty of the surrounding nature.

The buds of this tea are a precious treasure, and the picking standard consists of 1 bud and 2/3 leaves of high quality. They are the quintessence of a thousand-year-old tradition, a perfect fusion between craftsmanship and cultivation skill.

Every sip of this tea is a sensory journey that transports you to the magnificence of a bygone era. The delicate green leaves release an enveloping, vegetal aroma, a fragrant dance that fills the air with an intoxicating fragrance. The infusion is a celebration of the senses, a moment of pure enchantment in which tea is transformed into a work of liquid art.

But the pleasure doesn't end there. A persistent fresh aftertaste envelops the mouth, leaving a sensation of cleanliness and refreshing vitality. It's like a breath of freshness that gradually spreads, refreshing the palate and leaving a pleasant and lasting sensation. Furthermore, the traditional chestnut aroma, which comes from the pan-cooking of this ancient tea, gives it a unique and distinctive character, adding a note of warmth and tradition to the drink.

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.
