Tea is one of the oldest beverages globally, and it is also one of the most popular. It is fragrant, warm, soothing, loaded with antioxidants, and available in so many delicious flavours that it would be impossible for a tea lover to try them all in one lifetime.

But let’s focus on the packaging of this beloved hot beverage. Tea should be packaged to preserve its flavour and freshness, but the packaging design of a great tea brand should also catch the eyes of tea drinkers and reveal something about the company that manufactured it.

Here are eight examples of famous tea brands and their packaging design.

1. Twinings of London Tea

Twinings of London is a famous English tea brand producing quality teas for more than 300 years. A sustainable and ethical brand, they source their teas from many places worldwide.

Twinings offers teabags packaged in boxes of different colours and loose leaf tea in elegant tins that make us feel like we are part of English Royalty. The brand’s new logo is written in capital black fonts over a gold band, which helps reinforce this impression.

3. Bigelow Tea

Bigelow is another family-owned tea brand, and it has been around since 1945. Their tea bags are individually wrapped in a foiled stand up pouch to lock in their flavour and freshness. In addition, Bigelow is committed to manufacturing green packaging.

Although they sell tins and bags of loose leaf tea, they are mostly known for their boxes of tea sachets, and their design changes from one variety to the other. A teapot with a leaf inside replaces the letter “O.”
