Abstract [en]

4700 years ago, tea culture was born in China. For thousands of years, drinking tea has become one of the popular part of the daily life in many places around the world. Tea culture is no longer limited to the tea itself, it is also reflected in the way people drinking tea, in other words, tea ceremony. But fast-paced life has forced people to simplify the seemingly unnecessary process in their lives. The invention of the teabag replaced the complicated tea ceremony, but at the same time, the story and meaning behind drinking tea disappeared. In addition, in today's globalization, no matter where we are in the world, we always can see the spreading of culture. We can buy everything imported from other countries in the world. However, culture exists not only in people's creations but also in people's behaviors. More and more people are beginning to pay attention to the cultural significance behind the items. People began to try to experience another culture by doing rather than owning objects. So I started this project with the idea of critical design and slow design aiming to improve people's awareness of slowing down their lives through the spread of complex tea ceremony cultures. At the same time, the user experience and emotional design are also used as my guidance to stimulate people’s senses, which goes beyond reading to offer the opportunity to perform the tea rituals.
