"5 Cups and Some Sugar" is such an ingenious idea. Make your own tea and create your own packaging and have it delivered to your doorstep. Anyone can be a package designer and create your own tea blend. Read more about this concept and design from Sonnernstaub after the jump!



"5 CUPS and some sugar” is an online shop where customers can create their own tea mixture from more than 50 high-quality ingredients. The philosophy of individuality is strongly reflected in the packaging of the tea. For every tea mixture the customer can choose specific packaging with different colours and illustrations, for instance funny Easter eggs printed on the packet, hidden for example on the bottom of the cardboard box. The tea is delivered under an individualised name, which is defined by the customer when ordering, then printed on a label and attached to the box."
