Tea ceremony has a long history in China. Tea ceremony is an etiquette of life in a manner of tea, and an approach of self-cultivation. It strengthens friendships, promotes self-cultivation, and learns etiquette by making tea, admiring tea, and savoring tea, all of which are consistent with the Eastern philosophy advocating “purity and simplicity.”
The house owner expects to have this indoor space where tea culture plainly conformed to daily life. The artists’ creations are no longer unrealistic, but accessible to customers who can appreciate the house owner’s artistic collections blended with lifestyle, where invites customers to savor the taste of tea with aesthetics of art.
Colors of tea inspired the designer in planning the color scheme that the different levels of tea fermentation having different colors of teas have given the designer ideas to invent the delicate brown scheme. The plentiful natural decoration materials, as well as the exquisite colors, spawn the low-key and calm Zen style. The artworks ingeniously arranged make customers can savor their teas with favored tea utensils, who can physically and mentally immerse themselves in an art performance of tea life.
