An imagined Vintage Tea Poster featuring the Taiwan Bamboo Partridge 已竹雞為主角的懷舊茶行廣告
This painting was inspired by vintage tea posters from Taiwan during the Japanese Colonial era, 1895 - 1945. Taiwan is still famous today for tea and is considered a producer of some of the best Oolong teas in the world. The bird in this painting is a Taiwan Bamboo Partridge, endemic to Taiwan. You can find them frequenting tea fields and mountainous areas up to 1000m.
