Water is one of the most important ingredient during a tea ceremony: the abstracted water movement patterns refer to the different types of mood. Each type contains herbal blends which are related to the given mood. (e.g.: calm-lemongrass, valerian) Every mood has a unique identity by the chosen colors. The circle cut-out refers to the tea-filter paper, which has a secondary function: since it is water-resistant it can be used as a cover for the cup, allowing the herbs to steep.
