Milk tea is a popular tea drink. It is loved by people for its indulging taste and varied flavors. It is now available in a convenient 3-in-1 instant milk tea format (milk+tea+sugar).

The experience of milk tea is unique because it takes tea drinking to a new level – with rich flavors, indulging creaminess but also the goodness and caffeine boost from tea. It is often enjoyed during afternoon tea or any snacking time when you need a pick-up. It is as indulging and recharging as instant coffee but with additional healthy benefits from real tea (such as flavonoids and theanine).

Lipton wants to bring this experience to life and make the joy of instant milk tea more exciting and appealing. This exciting mix needs a refreshing presence on the store shelves and a catchy and engaging name. Above all, it needs a new design that embodies the “brightness” and “excitement” of the brand.

Creative Challenge

Give a refreshingly new presence to Lipton milk tea by creating a bright and exciting packaging and a relevant and engaging name for it.

Create something refreshingly original that still fits well in people’s daily lives. Normally milk tea goes with a box packaging with several small sachets in it (please find the current packaging here for your reference). You can choose to work on the current format and put an exciting touch through fantastic artwork or you can completely change its format but please do consider the practicality and convenience when people are buying it, storing it, and drinking it. Think about the nature of milk tea as a vibrant and recharging drink and try to embrace that through your design. You should also think about what could be the different flavors in order to create a full range and give a name to each flavor (you can choose the flavors like green tea milk tea, vanilla milk tea; etc.). They should be bundled under an exciting range name.
