Thank you very much for participating in Nozomi Japanese Green Tea Package Design Contest.
In the past, you have helped us pick the design of the package for Gyokuro and Matcha. (Click here to see the contest for Gyokuro and Matcha) This time, we asked for Nozomi, which is one of the most popular tea because it tastes like Gyokuro but more economical.
This time, the design options are not too different, but I wanted to get you involved.
Many customers say that the tin can we currently use is not too eco, and requested recycling options, etc.
Rather than keeping the tin can, we thought of changing the package to more eco-friendly washi Japanese paper. People are talking more about SDG these days, so thinking about that too! : )
Here are the questions that you are being asked. (The actual form can be accessed via here, and even the contest is closed, you can still submit your selection if you wish)
Earlier, when we did the gyokuro contest, we waited to share the result until we finished their production. I did not know that it took so long to go back and forth with the manufacturer to get the actual package done. :0
People forgot about the contest by the time we shared the result. (Sorry.)
So this time, we are sharing the result right away! : )
We will now start producing the package, and we will keep you posted on how it goes and when we are ready with the actual package.
And the winner is... Holizontal!
And here is the percentage of how people voted.
You can see that it was a battle between Horizontal design and Vertical design.
A lot of people mentioned that horizontal one looks like there are more contents and the wordings are easier to read (even they are the same size for all the designs)
Thank you very much again for participating and sharing your opinions about the design. We will be modifying a bit based on your suggestions. I will keep you posted on the actual production via Green Tea Club.
We are excited that the package production is finally going on right now. Here are a couple of images of how the design progress is going. We had to go back and forth between the package manufacture and designer to ensure the correct placement and color. It's a lot of work being involved in making things happen!
We are happy to let you know that the Nozomi package which you helped us design is finally done and our first batch arrived last week with the new crop tea.
Here are some photos, we will be taking more photos soon.
We have created a brand new 1-min video about this product to. Please see:

Tapioca drinks have swept a vast number of countries with their steady hold on teenagers and young adults, and Japan is not an exception to this. With the sheer amount of tapioca (or boba in some places) joints that have been popping up across Japan, it’s not an understatement that this drink is the trendy choice to sip on as you walk through Shibuya, Harajuku, or even Dotonbori. But just like waves, trends come and go, and it begs for the question: what’s the next thing that’ll make waves in Japan?
What is Coffee Creamer?
Here is a discovery from one of my little trials: using coffee creamer for matcha. Putting creamer in my matcha dishes when my friends come over is one of my favorite, little secret recipes.
In this article, I will show you what coffee creamer is and how you can use it to enhance your matcha tea.
