ChemisTea

ChemisTea is a tea company that takes the ancient lore and imperial exclusivity of tea and combines it with the tasteful chemistry of molecular gastronomy to provide a unique experience with every stir. This holiday gift set offers two flavors: Hojicha, a Japanese Green tea, and Keemun Mao Feng, a Chinese Black tea. The two, though they’re entirely different teas, have similar smokey flavor pallets that pair well with sweet flavors like chocolate. The set allows the consumer to experiment with different teas while also having the option to infuse their cup with a chocolate flavor boost for the perfect dessert tea.

ChemisTea’s Spoon is made from pressed bamboo fibers and can hold up in boiling water for up to one hour. The spoon distributes your flavor evenly while you stir and steep. This knockdown packaging is covered in a sketchy pattern to reference chemistry notes and is superimposed on two teal colors covered in staining. The two colors act to divide each side clearly and is a common motif throughout the packaging.

On the sides, there are simple infographics to inform the consumer of the new product and it’s an interesting take on something as simple as making tea. Supplementary information is located on the bottom of the box.
