Tea & Zen
Design of Baoer Zhongxiu Tea Canister

_

This is one of the design units of packages of Huoshan Yellow Tea. The origin place of the tea is under Baiyun Nunnery, Huoshan County, Anhui Province, therefore this design is named “Zhong Yin”, which means living in seclusion in a mountain. The design combines “Zen” and “Teaism”, describing Buddhist concept of “tasting Zen in tea”.
In China, Tea is implying letting go, which corresponds to the “letting go” in Zen. This is where the “tasting Zen in tea” comes from. A simple cup of tea actually is full of Buddhist mood and life philosophy. For this reason, we take “sitting in meditation” as design language and use it in the handle of canister cover, making it a distinctive decoration while keeping its function of a cover handle. What’s more, this design interprets the cultural connotation of “tasting Zen in tea” from both vision and structure.

这是霍山黄茶包装项目其中一个设计单元。因茶叶产地隐于霍山白云庵下,故名“钟隐”。以“禅道”与“茶道”的结合,描述出“茶禅一味”的意境。
在中国,茶的寓意是放下,暗合禅意的放下,故谓之“茶禅一味”。看似简单的一杯茶,其实禅意盎然,饱含对佛学的感悟及人生体味。因此,我们以“坐禅”为设计语言,将其作为罐盖的提手,让其具有功能性的同时兼具装饰性和辨识性。也从视觉及结构上诠释了“茶禅一味”的文化内涵。
