So today I thought I would focus for a bit on teas and drinks etc.. I'll be honest - most of these products I have picked up and bought because of their packaging. Being a good Irish women, I am still a devotee to Barry's Tea - when I can get my paws on a box, but over the past few years whilst living here in Oz, I have become a keen consumer of herbal and fruit teas.
I'll kick off with a brand I use a lot myself; Clipper Teas. A U.K. company who, now at 26 years old, focus on keeping their product lines; natural, organic and Fairtrade. The range is extensive and includes; everyday, white, green, fruit & herb and speciality teas, as-well as coffee and drinking chocolate lines. I am particularly fond of their Organic White Tea and Indian Chai. Their illustrative packaging is hugely eye-catching on the supermarket shelf (hence why I have too many boxes in my kitchen cupboard and I was happy to discover today (as I had been wondering for sometime) that the company responsible for the design is London-based Big Fish - I will shortly feature an article on their work on http://www.whatkatiesaw.com
