London Tea Co.


London Tea Co. line of teas was recently featured by Wallpaper magazine as an eco-friendly tea. In their words, "Coming across a reference book on Japan in his own home was all it took to inspire The London Tea Company founder to create the environmentally friendly packaging he uses for his organic teas...


Dinuk Dissanayake was struck by the idea of using origami techniques in the construction of the boxes.

The result: no glue, cellophane wrapping or sachets are necessary. Only
recyclable paper boxes printed with vibrant, eye-catching silhouettes
and the signature London Tea Company logo, adding a touch of colour to
an eco kitchen.

Dissanayake, a member of a generation of tea estate owners in Sri
Lanka, has developed three ranges of organic tea; Classic, Gourmet and
Youthful, which benefits from being utterly caffein-free. The tea comes
in biodegradable pouches which have been oxygen cleansed rather than
bleached, without strings, tags, staples or envelopes making for an
almost waste-free cuppa."Group2
