Love Tea? Love Design? Prepare to lose your shit...

Winner of the Golden Pin Design Award in Taiwan is the Tse-Xin Organic Tea Carrying Case – Taiwan Tea Series of Conservation Animals, produced for Tse-Xin Organic Agriculture Foundation by 3ya design Associates.

The Packaging Design award winner features hand-painted images in elegant colors that communicate the brand’s devotion to organic farming. When the series of four boxes is placed in order from left to right, a complete map of Taiwan appears. When they are separated, each image represents an animal under Taiwan’s conservation program and in its natural habitat. These images consist of a tree frog moving with the ripples of the river, the trail of a leopard cat appearing in the forest, a black bear strolling through the valley, and a spotted deer exploring in the rain. The two sides of the inner box contain illustrations of human industries and the natural environment, which represent the brand’s commitment to cherishing the earth through environmentally friendly cultivation practices. The simple design makes for convenient transportation and storage, as the boxes can be spread flat. The concept of offering an immediate tasting sample offers foreign visitors to Taiwan a new choice for souvenirs and gifts to take home.

So good from start to finish. Design like this makes it feel good to be alive with an insatiable desire for tea.
