The Pure Leaf Tea launch in foodservice is a case study in how beautiful branding combined with storytelling and theatre can create brand demand. See how dramatic photography punches the bright teas forward from a rich, black background creating mouthwatering imagery that served as the centerpiece for the Pure Leaf tea launch.
Pure Leaf™ teas are just that. Teas made from only tea. These high quality, loose leaf teas are as natural as tea can be. This Pure Leaf tea launch not only told an origin story to establish greater value, but educated operators on how to create “tea theatre” with unique presentation support for guests in foodservice.
The challenge was to bring yet another tea to foodservice in an already cluttered and competitive category. Establishing the brand’s differentiation and owning white space for the brand would be key to success.
The key to Pure Leaf’s success would be to bring tea origin education and unique tea presentation and serving ware to operators. By creating a tea theatre within restaurants, Pure Leaf can own the drama of the best teas served in the very best manner.
Creating the tea theatre begins with attention to detail in the packaging. From the drama of the design to the soft touch finishes, this tea engages all the senses.
The finest tea experience begins with the theatre of the presentation. Pure Leaf serving ware includes glass cups, timers and trays.
Creating theatre in sampling to operators was the first step in introducing the teas to foodservice.
