Hua-Yan Tea Guest House is located on Qing-Tian Street. It’s a flagship store for exhibiting Pu'er tea and silver pots made by minorities of Yunnan. While people taste tea, they pursue the realm of body and mind balance just like tea leaf and water becomes an inseparable commonwealth. The water in silver pots sublimates after boiling, presents a glinted world. In the silver pots exhibition area, we use the aspect of phenomenology to create the phenomenon of light and shadow fluctuation. The bumpy of the material symbolizes the trace of ten thousand times of hammering on the silver by silversmiths. Passing through the counter area weaving by wood and silver, we enter into another wooden tea space to enjoy tea. The spark of combining Cold silver with wood with temperature makes Hua-Yan Tea Guest House both modern and classic space.
