Charm: Ajiri Tea Artwork

This evening I did my weekly run to the local co-op, and found a new tea on the shelves.

Perhaps the most delightful aspect of this brand is the fact that each box is an individual piece of artwork. The labels are made from banana leaves cut into colorful shapes and carefully pasted onto the corrugated white background to create various village scenes. Running your fingers over the surface, you can feel every bump and snag. I don't think you can find two labels that are exactly alike.

Complete biography of the Ajiri Tea Company on back, accompanied by helpful map.

Even the tiny figures on the tea tags are completely precious.

And how does the tea actually taste? We shall have to find out soon.
