Classic literature reimagined as tea containers

Brand strategist and graphic designer Flora Chan has re-imagined some of the greatest literature classics ever to greet our minds as a series of fine teas. Dubbed the Prologue, the project involves a appropriately-dressed canister with tea blends that sum up each read.

For instance, Vladimir Nabokov’s Lolita tea canister has suggestive lip motifs on it and contains equally sensuous ingredients like Dark Oolong and Blood Orange in the tea itself; while the packaging for the Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland tea, obviously, has design elements of the Hatter’s mad hat plastered on it.
