"Prologue is a series of fine teas inspired by literary classics. Each canister of loose leaves features a unique blend of flavors that characterizes the novel. The designs on the tins include motifs from the narratives and other elements that are a part of the reading experience."

I am a designer originally from Singapore, and am currently a Communication Design major at Parsons the New School for Design.

I love coming up with stories, making things, and making things happen, and I’m currently learning how to make things responsibly.

Tea blends based on books - what could be better?
