Taj Mahal Tea Packaging Invites Access in a Sophisticated Way

The design of Taj Mahal Tea packaging is quite different than you're probably used to. It isn't a box with a flap that presents a finicky access point for infusions in sachets; instead, Gargee Thakkur of India seems to have modeled the boxes on cabinet drawers. This concept begins to separate itself from the usual throw-away carton and strives to become a piece of furniture in your kitchen.

Each example of Taj Mahal Tea packaging includes a set of three compartments that are filled with different flavors in paper pouchs. Little semicircular holes have been made into the tops of the folded card pockets, indicating that a simple pull with your finger will open up the elegantly and exotically illustrated boxes.
