A small batch production of West Lake Dragon Well tea from this winter season based on the highest grade picking standard (1 bud and 1-2 leaves). It features a smooth taste of edamame beans and a sweet, floral aroma with subtle notes of milk and citrus.

This delicate green tea is picked in November. Due to the low winter temperatures, the leaves grow slowly and accumulate lots of nutritions. In comparison to the spring harvest, the tea leaves also exhibit a richer, darker green hue.

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.
