While seniors often tell us the take a Chinese herbal tea when feeling sick, we may doubt if its really work. It’s unacceptably bitter and none of sugars but people still insist to believe this is the best. Why? There is a Chinese saying “good medicine taste bitter”. When something is bitter enough, it must good for you. If you overcome the bitterness, you will be success or at least be more mature. This Chinese herbal tea store presents this message from the design, which is inspired by old Hong Kong style, to remind us the beauty of our cultures.

It’s like going back to the old time when you enter the store. The blend of different colours complements each other perfectly to create a vintage style. The golden herbal tea containers are placed on an exquisite marble table and behind wall painted in greyish blue. According to Chinese philosophical concept, golden colour implies “gold” and blue means “water”; when gold and water combine, it gives a balance and rest function.

Another concept, “water produce wood”, which can be applied on the blue walls and the green pattern on another side. The green pattern represents “plants” and it gains “water” from the blue wall. That means the “plants” can grow healthily by the adding of water. When customers sit on the chairs next to those “plants”, they can take advantages from the “plants” and receive an auspicious blessing.

感冒初起、喉嚨痛、長痘痘的時候,老人家總會提議去街口喝碗涼茶,深啡的液體內蘊藏着多年來中國人的生活智慧。所謂苦口良藥,這碗湯藥連一顆糖都沒有,開店於的中環的涼茶店在設計上亦帶着這份傳統,沒有太多的花巧,以中式的風格呈現出舊式香港。

店舖以七、八十年代的裝修風格作基調,走進店裡彷彿時光倒流回到老香港,在店中央五個金色的涼茶壺擺放在雕有精緻直紋的雲石枱上,後面的牆身塗上漸層暈染開的鷃藍色,在中國五行哲學上,「金生水」有着休養生息的意思,像涼茶一樣可以替人調和。

「水生木」,藍色延伸到隔壁的牆,水綠色六角型花紋牆紙象徵了萬物得到水的滋潤後六六無窮、生生不息,客人坐在安放在前面的中式木椅休息,亦能重新等到生命泉源的力量。
