Why Should Businesses Choose The Packaging Lab for Custom Tea Packaging?

16 May 2023

As a tea manufacturer, you want custom tea packaging that looks attractive and protects the contents inside. At The Packaging Lab, we’re here to deliver. We offer custom-branded packaging that’s easy to order and designed to fit your needs. Here are some reasons why you should choose The Packaging Lab for your tea packaging: 

We Offer Many Size Options 

Packaging companies without size options can be frustrating to deal with. If you sell your tea in smaller quantities, it may lead to waste since there’s more space in the packaging than you need. On the flip side, you may find selling your tea in bulk is difficult if the company doesn’t offer enough large-sized custom tea packaging. 

At The Packaging Lab, we make things easy for businesses by offering a wide variety of sizes. For example, our stand-up pouches come in sizes as small as 3.25 x 4.75 x 2.0 inches all the way up to 12.0 x 12.5 x 3.5 inches. Unsure what sizes you need? You can order a free sample pack to see all our pouch sizes in-person. 

All Our Materials Are Food-Safe 

Not all materials are food-safe. Some contain contaminants that can affect food stored inside. According to Penn State University, food-safe materials are “not allowed to affect the color, odor, or taste of the food in any capacity.” Regulatory agencies such as the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) determine whether materials are food-safe or not. 

One example of a non-food-safe material is BPA plastics, which leak BPA into any food they come into contact with. Mayo Clinic states that BPA exposure potentially leads to an increased risk of high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, and type 2 diabetes. 

While not a food, tea exposed to non-food-safe packaging will, at best, be of lower quality. At worst, it can cause serious health issues for consumers. At The Packaging Lab, we only use safe custom tea packaging that doesn’t contain harmful contaminants. 

Our Custom Tea Packaging Is High-Barrier 

If you aren’t sure what high-barrier packaging is, it’s packaging that keeps your tea leaves safe from the elements. Here are a few things high-barrier packages protect from:


Mold requires moisture and thrives in humid conditions. Whether you’re shipping your tea off to retail stores or shipping it directly to customers, your tea products will likely encounter some humid weather along the way. 

As that moisture gets into the packaging, the mold will continue to grow until it arrives in your customers’ hands. They’ll likely notice it right away from the smell or strange look. However, if the mold problem is acute, they may not. 

Mold consumption is dangerous to people’s health and can lead to everything from GI symptoms to liver disease. By investing in moisture-resistant, high-barrier packaging, you’re protecting your customers. 


High-barrier packaging prevents most air particles from getting in before the customer opens the package. Air is a crucial part of the decomposition process. Microbes rely on oxygen and nitrogen when decomposing organic compounds. 

As such, if you place your tea leaves in packaging that isn’t high-barrier, they will decay much faster. By the time your customer receives the tea product, they’ll be shocked to find that it has a foul smell or has lost most of its flavor.
