Ruo Yin: The healthy alternative to Boba Tea
This product was a result of my exchange programs in Beijing and Singapore. I worked with a friend/colleague to build a simple product that would fit into the culture in which we lived while also build a small business. Upon bringing the idea back to London, a service designer professor was excited about the potential and lead us to some experts in the F&B industry.
Traditional Chinese Medicine is a hugely important industry in Asia having a big cultural relevance. However, it is being pushed aside to modern beverages which are popular but extremely unhealthy.
We created a product that would combat the unhealthy drinks (boba tea) while integrating TCM elements into the product.
