    We just received our new consignment of teas from Sri Lanka. They have travelled a long way  from the tea gardens to the sea port at Colombo to Felixstowe  port in Britain and finally to us.

    As we opened our teas one by one, we were overwhelmed by the beautiful aromas of the various teas wafting in the air.

    Our Apricot and Peach Ceylon tea reminded us of fresh ripe fruits in  warm sunshine and since we are enjoying a rather warm and sunny spring here, we decided to create an iced tea latte with it. Milk has a way of further bringing out the peach and apricot in this tea and is highly recommended, whether you use this recipe or just want to drink the tea hot.

    Creating an illustration for Tea People’s packaging was a true pleasure. The task of feeling out a mood, message, and brand and trying to create something that will communicate effectively to customers as well as catch the eye and add delight and beauty to a space is exciting and stimulating. It brings together many of my interests and was particularly satisfying because of who Tea People are and how much they care about their cause and the quality of their tea.

    They are people who are passionate about their work and are using profit to invest in the education of children in tea-growing regions. That’s a message that was genuinely exciting to try to communicate through branding design.

    I had already had the pleasure of tasting many of tea people’s excellent teas before becoming a part of the design project, and so once Gillian educated me a bit about what Tea People’s values are, we began to brainstorm images.
