The debate of whether sweet or savory zongzi, or sticky rice dumplings, tastes better, has become a part of the routines of Dragon Boat Festival in recent years. To cater to the varying preferences of zongzi lovers, the National Museum of China created four different packages with assorted flavors.

A collaboration with noted restaurant Ding Tai Fung, the packages include both traditional and innovative zongzi fillings. The dumplings are packed in cloth bags inspired by two collections of the museum, The Scroll of a Dragon Boat Race, a classical mountain-and-water painting from the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911), and a bronze rhinoceros-shaped zun vessel dating to the Han Dynasty (202 BC-AD 220).
