The Interactive Tea Art Experience, named “MEKONG”, takes inspiration from the culturally rich Mekong Delta region, at Dear TeaHouse, District 1, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.
Danh Le, a Vietnamese graphic designer just sent us this beautiful project. Dear TeaHouse, born in September 2018, is Vietnam’s first modern concept teahouse, and Ecolotus, the first Vietnamese company that pioneers in preserving the lotus using technology and environmentally friendly materials. Ecolotus recently announced that their immersive tea art experience named “MEKONG” takes place at Dear TeaHouse, District 1, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. Please read more below.
The MEKONG delta is a multi-cultural and historically rich region in the south of Vietnam. The name MEKONG often provokes a sense of the exotic, authentically tropic hospitality.
Dear TeaHouse and Ariyasa aim to arouse all senses of their guests by enlightening them with the cultural richness of the MEKONG delta region and encourage them to seek beyond conventional notions in order to discern the essence of beauty in the people and the land of this beloved area.
“MEKONG” takes inspiration from the beautiful landscape and people of the region. This unique tea art experience encourages people to “discern hidden beauty” in daily life, urging them to pause, see, and feel the beauty amidst the chaos of life in this highly urbanized age.
“MEKONG” also marks the first official collaboration between Ecolotus and Dear TeaHouse, Vietnam’s first concept teahouse. A major part of the immersive installation-art experience is crafted via the innovative use of Ecolotus’s variety of products, including dried lotus flowers and leaves.
“MEKONG” expects to draw more than 2,000 visitors over the course of three months. Visitors are invited to enjoy the holistic experience of:
- “MAJESTIC MEKONG”: the unique installation art produced exclusively for Dear TeaHouse taking inspiration from the image of “lotus pond”, designed and handcrafted from a total of more than 250 lotus-related products made by local artisans under the direct supervision of artisan Thien Nguyen of Saigon-based Dem Trang Studio.
- LOTUS FLOWER TEA: with special Lotus Flower Tea from Ecolotus, handmade in Dong Thap, Vietnam for Dear TeaHouse. Four signature teas have been selected by their artisanal, fragrant, and health-nourishment quality.
