Both the social aspect of tea drinking and the ephemeral beauty of plant growth are inspirations for a functional hydroponic garden table. Herbs grown inside the table will be brewed and shared in a communal act of tea drinking, alongside discussions regarding the ecological and social implications of consuming tea.
