Good Fortune in the Year of the Rat


Defining the 12-year repeating cycles of the zodiac, each lunar year is named after an animal in the order of the Great Race.

The legend unfolds as the Jade Emperor, celebrating his birthday, decides to hold a great race. Calling for all the animals to participate, the first 12 to finish would be given a place within the calendar, with each year being named after the animals in the order in which they finished.

The Rat, of small stature but cunning intelligence, persuaded the mighty Ox to transport him just across the treacherous river. Jumping ahead to victory once safe from the swell. The Rat is the first in the zodiac calendar.

A Modernist Approach to the Traditional Envelope


Red envelopes typically contain a monetary gift presented at social and family gatherings. The brilliant scarlet color offers good luck to the recipient, and promises to ward off evil spirits.

Imperial Oolong and Organic Long Life Green couple in a new expression of the traditional "lai see” or “hong bao". Embrace harmony and fortune. Treasure the lucky leaves within.
