    Since I was little, the very first thing my mom does in the morning is to boil water and make some tea for the family. A habit of my mom's became mine eventually which I've continued doing so until now and will continue. 

    My mom once said, "As the tea softly lays on my tongue, follows through the throat, and sit on the stomach, I think about all the concerns and worries I had last night, detox them all out, so that I can freshly start my day off ". 

    I found paper making similar with my mom's experience with tea and decided to recreate the moment of drinking tea with paper.
