Material determines the value of tea
The characteristics of tea are determined by the physical and chemical composition and quality of tea, such as hygroscopicity, oxidative, adsorption, brittleness, and variability. Therefore, when designing tea packaging, we must consider the use of appropriate materials for packaging according to these characteristics. We should choose composite materials with good moisture resistance, oxygen resistance, light protection, and natural odor, and a certain tensile strength. Investigations and studies that are currently in use on the market are better polyester/aluminum foil/polyethylene composites, followed by stretched polypropylene/aluminum foil/polyethylene composites. These are known as aluminum platinum composite films and are used in daily tea packaging. The best one for moisture resistance, oxygen resistance, and fragrance protection. Now there is a new packaging box, which is a paper composite. The upper and lower lids of the cans are made of metal. The can body is made of offset paper/printed paper aluminum foil/polyethylene and it has a strong fresh-keeping effect. The metal cans are lighter and the design methods are even more masterful and beautiful. This gives designers more room to play.
Tea packaging can generally be divided into two major categories, both large and small. Large packaging is also called transport packaging. It is mainly used for transportation, loading and unloading. It is generally used for wooden boxes and corrugated cartons. Tin cans or iron drums are also used. Small packaging, also known as retail packaging and sales packaging, can protect tea. Quality, there is a certain degree of ornamental value, easy to promote, display, exhibition, and easy to carry. There are many types of small packaging, from the different materials can be divided into hard packaging, semi-rigid packaging and flexible packaging three categories, such as hard packaging tin cans, tin cans, porcelain bottles, glass bottles and craft wooden box, bamboo box, craft engraving Gold-plated boxes, etc.; semi-hard packaging with various cardboard boxes; flexible packaging with paper bags, plastic food bags and various summer bags, etc., design can be based on different needs, with appropriate materials for packaging design.
The first thing to consider when designing tea packaging is its material and structure. Whether packaging materials are suitable or not will directly affect the quality of the goods. This is also determined by the nature of tea, a special commodity, so it is easy to choose structural precision. Open the material for tea packaging. With the development of the packaging industry and the combination of modern high technologies, many new types of packaging have emerged. There are also many new and unique tea packaging on the market, but some packages seem to be high-end, but there is a tendency to overpack, and some are out of the attributes of the goods, blindly pursuing a surface of gorgeous decoration and floating color, and the tea itself The quality is inconsistent. For example, there is a surface on the market that is plastic engraved gold-plated tea packaging. There is no information conveyed by the goods on the packaging, giving a sense of craftsmanship rather than tea.
