beautiful teasPosted: November 19, 2009
Having never been a big tea drinker, I would always decline when my boyfriend offered me a cup of tea in the morning. Having come from a family of avid tea drinkers, he’s been drinking it for most of his life. Eventually he got the better of me and I broke down and tried a cup (after having been prepared correctly*). Since then, I’ve been hooked on black teas.
During my lunch break today, I walked to one of the nearest cafes and bought a cup of tea. I immediately noticed the beautiful design of the tea bags – from Harney and Sons. The design is very elegant and visually stunning – clean, yet not boring. I love patterns, and I think the packaging makes excellent use of a pattern to brand the tea, but not overwhelm the viewer.
Does nice design make something taste better than it already is? I’d wager so.
