Beverage Packages

B&T is the agency that created the packaging of Doo Smoothie, Go Juices and Saké.

Their designs speak for themselves.

sake 2

It’s hard to resist the temptation of tasting this sake (even if it tastes awful). The original bottle that contains this “rice wine” has its own cup that works as the cap of the product too.

1. Ice cube tray in allusion to pirates and skulls.

2. Perfect for tequila and straight shots.

3. For diamonds and precious stones.

4. Straws with lemons and limes.

5. From the space invaders classic game.

6. For music lovers.

7. For a chic drink, high heels.

8. My favorite at last, false teeth made of ice, or even better made with pink gelatin.

Sometimes accidents are good…

… and not just because Failure leads us to learning, there are cases like the coca-cola creation that can prove it.

A man called John Pemberton created a beverage from the mixture of carbonated water and a syrup that he invented based in the coca leaf and the kola nut (that’s the reason for its name).

This beverage was created with the purpose of becoming an aid in headaches, and for 8 years it was sold in drugstores. Afterwards it became so popular that it started to be sold in bottles and commercialized as we know it today.

Something similar happened with radioactivity, post-it notes and penicillin. Click here to know more about these and other accidental inventions.

Green Tea

I always had some sort of idea about the WONDERFUL properties of green tea. But everytime I forced myself to drink one cup (to obtain the famous benefits), the horrible taste of sea algae made me leave my cup of tea almost completely full.

A few days ago I tried a green tea sold in a big package with the herbs packed altogether instead of the typical individual little tea bags. Big change, the taste is completely different and now I do take it pretty often. I recommend it not only for the taste, but also because it:

  • Delays ageing (contains antioxydants).
  • Contains fluoride which helps harden bones and teeth and also prevents cavities (strange but true).
  • Reduces risks of some types of cancer.
  • Contains diuretic properties:
    • Reduces colesterol levels
    • Helps in digestive processes
    • Reduces liquid retention
    • Collaborates with weight loss

It can be a really good option to keep ourselves hydrated instead of drinking sodas and beverages with a high caloric content.

* Green tea is healthier than other types of teas because it maintains its natural properties which would otherwise be lost in fabrication and packaging processes.
