Help New uses alert. Yes I’m a new user and need help.
We currently have a successful herbal tea company based in Cornwall and have just branched out and released a Sencha green tea. We are now trying to finalise the packaging for a Black tea Which is a rich mix of un ground Assam and Kenyan Teas but captured in a bag..
We are looking for a name but don’t want breakfast, all day, everyday etc. We don’t want to be too off the wall with the name but any help? Please We are not a big company just a family business taking on the big boys with quality ingredients at a realistic price.
Thanks for any comments.Martyn & Martina
Penzance Black “hearty and malty evokeing the romance of pirates and far off shores”
Sounds good and says its a black tea
This is the bla bla we have got for the back of the box so far:
This rich blend of pure Assam & Kenyan tea leaves, give a strong cup of tea with well rounded flavours.
Kenyan tea provides the deep copper colour and a smooth taste, whilst Assam delivers the rich malty flavour we all love in our British brew!
Once the tea leaves have been picked they are allowed to wither and then oxidise whilst drying, giving them their dark black colour.
There are many grades to tea leaves but the 4 main grades are: whole leaf, broken, fannings and dust.
Unlike cheaper and commercial teas, we use broken tea leaves in our bags. This offers the strong but delicate flavours of loose tea with the convenience we all desire during our busy days.
For a perfect brew do not add milk until the tea is ready as the milk fats will block the filter paper and stop the tea from delivering its full flavour.
Fannings and dust, most commonly. Or CTC, I think, but CTC leaf is reduced to the size of fannings anyway, so it amounts to the same thing for me.
Angrboda is correct with the fannings and dust.
Cheep tea bags use dust so when you tap the bag you get that horrible dust everywhere.
It turns the water a quicker colour of tea but there is no depth to the flavour.
We have experimented with whole leaf but when it unfurls in the bag there is not enough space for a good infusion.
Using the broken or BOP we get a real depth of flavour but it does take a moment for the colour to develop.
A good tea is something to take your time over and enjoy.
But all the tea leaves in the bottom of the pot sometimes puts people off.
It’s the world we live in hurry hurry hurry ;)
Sounds lovely! I hope your shop does well.
Yopur spices look great! What a fantastic business to be in. Wiish I could smell all thst goodness.
Thanks for that.
When ever we get visitors to the packing den they all comment on how lovely our work place smells.
Today we are making our unique Camomile & Elderflower Herbal Infusion.
We carefully bruise the Camomile to allow for full flavour when infused and blend it with full elderflowers. With the Lush meadow smell of Camomile and the Honey sweet notes of elderflower. The aroma drifts nicely through the air when packing but by leaving the flowers whole the flavour lasts and imparts a wonderful full flavour when infused.
I hope you don’t mind me saying that, but I visited your website, and while the design you chose (colour scheme and fonts) works well on labels, the website looks outdated and unappealing. I don’t mean to be rude or picky, but I believe the first impression is important. I wish you all the best and good luck!
Hi Paddy why should I mind all input is good input.
As I have been designing it myself I have overlooked it as time has gone on. looking at the design you might have something! :0
I think it could be time for a revamp. As we are a small family company it may take some time but I will get to it asap.
Thanks for the heads up Martyn
