Made from the finest green tea leaves available, meticulously fermented and dried, Sazio Fine Teas of Japan are meant to be savored, shared and enjoyed. These are not quick morning brews, but lazy garden strolls with bare feet and sun-drenched skin.
Sazio hired Flux Appeal to create custom artwork and labels for tea canisters and boxes to accompany their specialty line of fine teas.
The series of three label designs feature hand painted artwork that builds upon the founder’s unique story and Japanese-Italian heritage. Watercolor studies of textures and colors from nature embody the robustness of the Italian countryside, while clean lines and delicate ornamentation mirror those often found in Japanese art. The artwork and labels convey a decidedly rustic yet simple approach using principles of Wabi-sabi.
