Cherries Tea House

Cherries Tea House is a tea shop in Tainan, Taiwan. It has been more than ten years since they opened in 2001. This June, the shopkeeper commissioned Chin Huan Chou to design a new corporate identity system for a series of package.

"The four straight lines on the patterns mean cherry’s stem and straw. Stem is a part the image of cherry, and straw represents the drinking culture in Taiwan. According to my observation, there is no printer machine in the tea shop. They write down the order and it’s difficult to mark up on the cup. So I designed this sticker to note the amount of ice and sugar of each drink. The entire ordering process doesn’t change but it’s easier to distinguish different drinks, the look of the cup also becomes better."

Scientists say milk first is the correct way to make a cup of tea (although this writer disagrees). They say adding the milk after boiling water causes it to heat unevenly, denaturing the proteins and affecting the taste. Our Adam Gabbatt demonstrates the best method. The longer the brew, the better!


one time i got a sample from the tea store at the mall and as i walked away the guy said “tea you later” and then his coworker smacked him
