Tea As A Work of Art

Jill Harness

Most teas have pretty generic labels, but Triptea is certainly not one of them. That's because they hired artist Andrew Gorkovenko to create their labeling. The medium? Crushed tea leaves.

The end result is not only fantastic, but also incredibly appropriate. Not only are the artworks made with the product the company is selling, but the imagery also depicts stunning scenes from where the teas are grown. For example, the first image, a label for Ceylon tea, depicts Sri Lanka and the second, made for a green tea, shows the Great Wall of China.
