Tea Takeaway Services

Mirume's Morning Green Tea Service Operates During Commuting Hours

— May 20, 2021 — Art & Design
Mirume, an award-winning top tea producer in Japan, launched a takeaway green tea service to support morning commuters and reduce packaging waste. The "asa bottle" service (meaning "morning green tea") shares green tea with tea leaves in a bottle that can be prepared by adding water to the glass. The 300ml reusable glass bottle can be picked up in the morning and then returned in the evening. People can even choose to use the leaves more than once before
returning the bottle since the included green tea leaves strong enough to brew up to three batches of tea.

The product is only sold during the hours of the morning rush when many people are busy commuting. Rather than risking a hot drink to go, this solution lets people experience high-quality tea leaves at their leisure in an eco-friendly way.
