Packaging is my Cup of Tea

This  is posted by a guest blogger: Rita Masarin.

Starting from the first stage of our tea packaging assignment using 6 thinking hats   created by Edward d Bono ‘s  decision making technique http://www.mindtools.com/pages/article/newTED_07.htm.  We too had to create our own thinking hats and wear them while role playing our coloured hats.  To the next stage  (  really fun bit) ‘The Mad Hatters Tea Party’. Whilst we were brain storming  and blogging our tea packaging ideas we were getting onto some yummy cake tasting and sipping exotic teas. Read the rest of this entry »

More Tea?

If there is no limit on the amount of tea that I can blog about, here I go again…

Mr Tea needs one more flavour to add to the collection that I had written about in a previous blog, I did have full intentions of having the black tea as my “special occasion” tea and just using the other three (breakfast tea + the 2 new ones) as the regular teas but I do like even numbers and sometimes just can’t stop myself when I’m having fun. I think it is also great to just do a little extra incase something is not working out in the end and you then have an emergency back-up without experiencing the whole ‘end of world’ scenario. So I now have a range of 4 regular teas: black, breakfast, roobois and white, leaving me to make a completely different package (and flavour?) for the special occasion tea.

More Tea for breakfast

Last time I blogged about tea I remember I was traumatized by the green vanilla tea experience. Well, I have surged on beyond that to better flavours and darker teas. Read the rest of this entry »

Vanilla Green Tea

Vanilla Green Tea is the flavor I bought, I thought it was about time I tasted something to do with the tea I was packaging, and as we are packaging 3 ‘flavors’ plus a novelty package it’s about time I started drinking a bit of tea.

It is warm and tasty, just not the taste I appreciate. To be honest I am not entirely enjoying this drink, lucky I only bought 5 tea bags of the stuff, at least it’s good for me. Just how good for me is the question… back on with the white hat I go… Read the rest of this entry »

Tea Time

Being a lover of coffee I have found myself in a bit of hot water lately with the tea fans in our class while learning about our tea packaging project. I foolishly wondered out loud what the difference between the different types of tea was, to me there is was 3 types of tea – these being normal, floral & green. Well, during our assignment on tea packaging using de Bono’s 6 hats to help with the process (I have had to put on my white hat and research) I have discovered there is more than a thousand different types of tea from more than thirty countries!

This is getting fascinating so I’ll share just the amazing bits of my research with you: Read the rest of this entry »
