Too often I see tea having to conform to the packaging versus the packaging being made for the tea, for example 5 ounces of premium sencha in a tin because the tin is large. This will never cut it with a Japanese tea aficionado.
I look at the Japanese approach to packaging of their precious teas, beautifully functional. It is like a present each time I open a new bag, I carefully cut the bag in order to preserve its beauty.
We discussed this on the forum in the past, and just about everyone kept these bags and felt the presentation was awesome, yet professional. The cost of these bags is minimal and can be finished with printed labels if need be in order to deal printing issues and further reduce costs.
The size is perfect
for the intended net weight. Often the foil bag is nitro flushed and/or vacuum sealed to maximize freshness and shelf life.
The packaging is so beautiful, I can never throw one away, but will use them for samples to others, etc. Or just hold onto them, like trading cards.
Yeah, they are all that!
The Japanese have long imitated Western industry, why not return the favor.
Clearly, packaging can make or break customer loyalty to a vendor. Professionalism, functionality, and panache ...
