Abstract

From a perspective of a young Chinese person, I noticed that lots of Chinese youth who like me neither drink tea daily nor understand the cultural meaning of tea. It is concerning that the lack of awareness of tea among Chinese youth might lead to the loss of Chinese tea culture. In this thesis project, I will introduce a system of portable teaware design focused on motivating users to enjoy the true beauty of tea, and so inspiring them to reassess their understanding of tea and themselves.
