Designed by Peter Schmidt Group. “Tea drinkers are individuals of strong character, people who like to indulge in a moment of deceleration in their daily lives, and this is the target group of Teahouse Exclusive’s “Everyday Line”. The packaging is of a bronze, shimmering quality and adorned with loosely drawn images of different cups and teapots, while thanks to a bold, colour coding approach, each tea variety immediately catches the eye. The typography has also been 100% handpicked, just like the teas themselves, with individual writing styles that promote their originality. This is as personal as it gets.”

Tea capsules

 “Tea in capsules, from Swedish brand Löfbergs Lila. 347 %. That is how much the sales of capsules in Sweden increased in 2011 (Source: AC Nielsen, Jan 2012). Coffee capsules of all kinds have become a best-seller, and the capsule machine is very common in Swedish homes. The machine now has more fields of application. Last year Löfbergs Lila launched tea capsules under the trademark Kobbs. The possibility of brewing one cup at a time in a quick and easy way is a success. It is great to be able to offer all tea drinkers this easy solution. At the same time, you preserve the great taste qualities that you find in loose tea. It tastes more and looks more delicious in your tea cup, says Leif Sjöblom, marketing manager at Löfbergs Lila.” Via Mynewsdesk

Mood Garden Tea

“Being in the right mood at the right time can make a world of difference. Getting in that right mood can sometimes be as simple as a cup of tea. Mood Garden is a tea company that focuses on providing Fair Trade loose leaf tea in the convenience of tea bags. Each tea blend corresponds with a unique color and flower to help visualize these moods. When the tea drinker removes the tea bag from the stick, a prompt followed by a small flower is revealed. Since many tea drinkers read while brewing, the vertical orientation of the stick makes it a very convenient book mark. Product is set for presale late February and official retail in April.” Designed by Alexander Chin.

Tea Bag Coffin

Jonas Trampedach has been observing the behaviour of tea drinkers and has evidently been learning a lot. Consequently he has developed a solution to the bag dilemma that is as simple as it is ingenious. With the ‘Tea bag Coffin’, the drinker can tidily bury the bag under the cup and out of the way….

Damn Fine Tea

When you have a package, you emptied it and something tells you – it’s too nice and considered to be thrown away – then there is a value added. Not only the fact that you may keep the package, but also the fact that this thought crossed your mind. Of course this is not the only answer how to build responsible packaging design…

When you have a package, you emptied it and something tells you – it’s too nice and considered to be thrown away – then there is a value added. Not only the fact that you may keep the package, but also the fact that this thought crossed your mind. Of course this is not the only answer how to build responsible packaging design in the world. But I think it’s complementary to recyclable and environmentally friendly materials and systems that are being developed. Damn Fine Tea it is, and it’s designed in collaboration with Aesthetic Apparatus.

Kusmi Tea

This is not just tea. This is an experience. It’s not possible to pick a traditional tea bag if this package is present on the table. Kusmi has it’s headquarter in Paris. The company which produces Russian-style teas, was established by Pavel Michailovitch Kousmichoff, 1867 in St Petersburg, Russia. The company blends teas from China, India, and…

This is not just tea. This is an experience. It’s not possible to pick a traditional tea bag if this package is present on the table. Kusmi has it’s headquarter in Paris. The company which produces Russian-style teas, was established by Pavel Michailovitch Kousmichoff, 1867 in St Petersburg, Russia. The company blends teas from China, India, and Ceylon with aromatics like lemon, bergamot, lime, mandarin orange and flowers. They also have green teas, detox versions etc etc. A true treat for the senses! The packaging – a colorful tin canister – is a big part of the experience. This kind of product gives the user a chance to reflect over what they are consuming. Instead of immediately throwing packages away after consumption – you would probably reflect a moment how it might be useful into re-use it.
