Client Name: Our Story, St Andrews
"St Andrews Tea project was commissioned by 'Our Story', a brand new tea house and storytelling centre in St Andrews, Scotland. Like us at Tea People, 'Our Story' is focused on people and community and, like us, they are a social enterprise giving away at least 50% of their profits to charity.
Since a large focus of their brand involves celebrating the town they are in and celebrating the people around them, they wanted to create a special tea-based project that would help them reach out to the local area and establish themselves in people's hearts. We created several unique designs and illustrations based on the people, the history and the geography of St Andrews for 'Our Story' to use on labels, postcards and marketing and we made customised tea menus for use in the store.
Client name: Oasis Clothing
Tea People was commissioned by Oasis, the high street retail chain to create a new tea blend to mark the launch of their fashion range in collaboration with award winning ceramic designer Peter Ting. This was a vital part of their “afternoon tea” marketing campaign to attract more customers to experience and buy the Peter Ting “Flutter” range.
We created a new blend called the 'Oriental Garden Green Tea'. The tea was blended keeping in mind Peter Ting’s hummingbirds, vibrant and colourful while also celebrating womankind, her beauty and kindness. We even created a bespoke packaging for them with designs to match their “Flutter” range for their bespoke tea. This tea was distributed at several large Oasis stores around the UK and was very well received by their visitors and customers.
We even had some of their customers writing directly to us letting us know how much they liked our tea.”The tea is very pleasing to look at and has a delicate flavour”. The icing on the cake however was when Peter Ting himself tweeted “Thanks for the lovely flutter tea. Sooo pretty”
Client Name: Harvey Nichols
Harvey Nichols wanted to create a special celebratory tea to mark the Queen’s 90th birthday. Their team did an extensive research into her Royal Majesty’s tastes and discovered that her favourite pre lunch drink was a Gin and Dubonnet. They then approached us to see if we could give this a bit of a twist and re-create this drink as a unique tea blend.
We accepted the challenge. But as the recipe of Dubbonet is a company secret, the only way to finding its ingredients (which was vital to creating the tea), was to do some tasting. So we bought a bottle of Dubonnet, mixed it with some Gin and with the help of our master blender Vishaka's exceptional nose, listed the ingredients that would create the same taste. We finally came up with three different variations from which Harvey Nichols chose the one they liked the most. They were quite excited about this new blend.
We then packaged the tea in a special commemorative tin. This tea was sold by Harvey Nichols at all their food halls and online as special edition “Royal-Tea” and also served as part of a special Royal themed Afternoon Tea in their cafes and brasseries across the UK.
As 'Tea People' we pride ourselves on making Tea just right for people. We know that people and businesses come in all shapes and sizes and have a variety of needs, and so our dynamic design department specialise in working with you to create tea products you can feel proud of! We believe the perfect cuppa should really be a perfect fit in every way.
