How many teas can I have packaged as “My Own Label”?
As many as you like. How is the tea packaged? It is important that the packaging meets both the need to be cost effectively personalised (without having large minimum order quantities) and to be able to protect the tea to keep it as fresh as possible. To this effect, we have developed a combination retail pack that includes a Jenier vacuum sealed insert, containing the tea, inside a white or brown Kraft bag. The outside of the Kraft bag is labelled with your chosen design and personal details and can either be with or without a co-ordinating ribbon. The back label contains a description of the tea, ingredients and storage and preparation details along with the Ethical Tea Partnership logo where appropriate. All bag and ribbon options are available for you to select online at the point of ordering.
Do I have to choose the same label design for each tea?
No, not at all. You can mix and match any label designs but for each design and tea the minimum order is always 6 x 100g (or equivalent depending on the tea) or 6 x 15 Pyramids per tea.
How many label designs are there?
There are currently 18 label designs for you to choose from developed around the themes of Flowers, Leaves, Vintage and Retro. We have more label designs in the pipeline and these will be added as they become available.
What is the shelf life?
As we package the tea inside Jenier vacuum pouches, the tea is kept extremely fresh. A by-product of this process is the shelf life of loose leaf tea is extended to 10 years prior to opening and a further 2 years after opening. Our pyramid teabags are also packed using the same process but as we use bio-degradable mesh, the shelf life is 4 years prior to opening and a further 2 years once opened.
I want to sell pyramids, but what about the tags?
The concept of ‘My Own Label’ is very much a partnership. This is not a white label service, more a way of working together from a perspective where we are the tea company packaging your tea for you to personalise and sell. To have your own branded tags costs thousands of pounds and if this is what you require, then the My Own Label service is not for you. If however you are happy to say “Yes, Jenier World of Teas is our tea supplier and packages our tea for us” then it is an ideal partnership that can work at very low order quantities across any teas in either pyramids or loose leaf.
Does the packaging have the Jenier logo on?
The outer Kraft bag does not have any Jenier logo present. For compliance, Jenier Limited is named as the packer of the product and inside the Kraft Bag, the silver Vacuum pouches have the Jenier World of Teas text printed on them. If you have chosen pyramid tea bags, then the tags show the Jenier World of Teas logo. Most customers comment that they are happy to show their tea has been sourced and packed by Jenier World of Teas as a mark of high quality products, packaging and as a member of the Ethical Tea Partnership.
Can I have my logo on the packaging?
Yes! We will try to incorporate your logo on any of the label designs we offer for no extra charge. We would require you to e-mail your logo in a high resolution pdf. form to email@example.com. Once your logo has been applied, we will be in touch to show you an example label for your approval before going to print.
What if I only want my own design?
We understand that you may wish to have your own bespoke design and this is possible. If you wish to supply a fully branded label design with your logo etc. in a pdf or eps file we can print your labels. There is a set up charge of £50 + VAT however the minimum order requirement is still only 6 x 100g or 6 x 15 Pyramids per tea. Please note though that the vacuum inserts used inside the pouches are branded Jenier World of Teas. The label measurements are 80mm wide x 110mm length. Please e-mail your order requirements and pdf/eps files to firstname.lastname@example.org or call us to discuss.
