Ce que vous allez faire
In Shenzhen, tea is deeply embedded in the local culture: Family and friends deepen emotional ties through tea. Here, tea functions more like a bottle of fine whiskey does in the western world. The whole process - from purchasing the leaves, to brewing, to drinking - is meant to be savoured. We will delve into this unique feature of China’s everyday life visiting a tea market warehouse, traditional tea houses and modern tea stores that are transforming the way tea is experienced. Be ready for numerous tea tastings along the way!
Hi there! We are Sara and Benedetta, two Italian designers living and working in Shenzhen. We are here since 2015 and we witnessed and participated to the city growth. At the begin we were a bit lost because Shenzhen is big and it’s difficult to find its gems, but after years of exploration, our predisposition of delving into the city made us discover it all! We run our design studio here and it’s our pleasure to show you the city through our eyes, in places where innovation goes arm in arm with tradition and where the local culture meets international vibe. Welcome to Shenzhen, let’s meet!
