Fine tea from the Black Forest on Lishan Mountain
Turquoise, the main color of this gift box, represents the sky over Lishan Mountain. The wood cut picture presents the scenery of a tea plantation. The prominent owl is a ‘harbinger of good tidings’ in Taiwanese indigenous culture, and extends protection over the forest. Hand-drawn portrayals of species native to the area such as the Formosan black bear, the Formosan sambar deer, the wild boar, and the red-headed tit represent different teas from this plantation, and refer to the harmonious relationship between traditional tea plantations and their surrounding nature.
