Great idea, poor execution.

Tea bag with an inspirational saying.

Tea bag with an inspirational saying.

This teabag design idea looks great for someone like me, who likes to read and reads everything, including nutrition information labels, contact information – whatever gets into my field of vision. But alas, like many great ideas it was rendered useless by poor implementation: The quotes repeat in each bag, so after a while I stopped reading them – they are all the same.

And it’s not like there’s a shortage of inspirational quotes and if needed, they could even invent new ones, along with the attribution (I know who Pancho Villa was, but I’m sure most don’t): e.g. “Three cups of rice is better than one. Old Chinese Saying”, or “Happy people live longer. Jack McDaniel”. Not hard at all 😉
