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.

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 »

Edward de Bono’s 6 thinking hats

Talking about Tea with Stacy, our work and progress can be viewed on the clas blog: http://originateconcepts.blogspot.com/ .

Wearing Edward de Bono’s 6 thinking hats I will be exploring packaging options for tea, using the 5 genres and 5 names chosen in class. I already have some solid ideas which I just have to put on paper then build prototypes for. Read the rest of this entry »
