Tea Packaging

Objective: Design a new way to package and market tea.

I wanted to create a package for my tea that was aesthetic and also functional.  In the process of developing my concept I identified several tea drinker problems that could be solved with the packaging.  The first was knowing when one is running out of tea — the package provides visual feedback that it is time to buy more tea.  The second problem was dispensing the tea bag, so the packaging provides a tab to easily “pull” each bag out of the package.  The third problem is making sure the tea bag does not fall into the cup of hot water — in this design the individual tea packaging expands to a “T” shape which serves to keep the bag anchored on the top of the cup.  This was a RISD Pre-college summer project.
