The Chinese tea Mingren Mingyan originates in the Fujian Province, near the Wuyi mountain. This area is also the root to Chinese tea culture. Translated the name ‘Mingren’ means tea maker or the man who sampling tea; ‘Mingya’ means the geographical location of tea growth and the special conditions of the land that gives rise to the unique flavor of the tea produced.
This Chinese tea packaging was designed by Beijing design agency One & One design. According to thedieline the design of the MINGYIN tea collection is as followed:
“The design of the word ‘Ming’ is inspired by an ancient form of Chinese art – rock rubbing. It is also representative of the Chinese culture, linking tea growth to China’s history. In content, ‘Ming’ could be loosely translated to ‘well-known’, again the two collections are tied up in a subtle way.
In the design of the logo, we have highlighted ‘艹’ (grass) of the word ‘茗’ and ‘山’ (mountain) of the word ‘岩’. It is only in the wild nature, between the heaven and earth, may we find the best tea plantation.”

If you ever wanted to learn Chinese and never got around to doing it or felt it was to difficult this could be your chance. Chineasy is a project by Shao Lan who has developed together with illustrator Noma Bar an easy to understand Chinese character set. As you can see in the images above, each character incorporates an illustration which reveals the meaning of it.
“Over the past two years, I have deconstructed nearly two thousand of the most frequently used Chinese characters and identified the top one hundred ”components”. These components are similar to the different shapes and sizes of LEGO® bricks. To create more characters, you just need to combine two or three (and sometimes four or five) of these components together.”
If you have been following CreativeRoots since 2010 you may remember the Mandagrams project which is quite similar. If you haven’t, I recommend you to check out part 1 and part 2
