Leafs and Bounds is an American tea company that specializes in loose leaf teas. From traditional blends to more artisanal hand-crafted ones, it is proud to distribute products created under fair trade guidelines. The brand is organic and playful, and the misspelling of the word "Leaves" is intentional to mimic the saying "Leaps and Bounds."
The logo consists of a deer with antlers modeled after a Japanese sika stag in the counter space of the leaf. The type is intended to be organic and have handwritten qualities while a modern sans allows the brand to hold a sense of elegance and luxury.
To maintain sustainability, packaging consists of paper bags with lining to keep the tea leaves dry. The label is also letterpressed and uses color to also distinguish the teas from each other. Steeping instructions, nutrition information, and a brief description of the tea will be listed on the back.
Leafs and Bounds sells their products in stores across the US as well as online. The website features products for sale, information about the types of teas carried, accessories such as mugs, tins, and tea infusers, and a guide for finding the right tea(s) for the benefits a customer seeks.
Usually loose leaf teas are sold or stored in tins. However, this can prove an unsustainable practice for the general public. But for those who drink loose leaf teas regularly or use tea tins to store tea bags and sachets, elegant tins can be a practical addition to a countertop and serve a purpose. These tins are examples of sizes and illustrations available as a supplemental purchase.
Drinkware such as mugs are valuable parts of gift sets and great logoware items. Plus, who ever said they had too many mugs?
