Tea or Coffee? / homeware

Tea or Coffee?
Tea or Coffee?

My “Tea or Coffee?” set was conceived from of my observation that things Western are increasingly popular in the East, and vice-versa. Coffee is becoming popular in China but tea will always be the traditional drink of choice, which is why I married old with new on one yin-and-yang-etched tray. Tea or Coffee Project is a Tea and Coffee set Design, It combines both Eastern and Western culture. It can serve both Tea and Coffee at the same time. It is not just a Functional Product but also a beautiful artifact for display.
