The calming scent of herbs are in the air, and should be every time your lid is removed! How can you ensure you’ve secured your teas, spices, and herbs with the right packaging? We discuss that today as a continuation of last month’s oil & vinegar guide.
The Perfect Package for Teas, Herbs, & Spices
These vibrant and flavorful elements of Earth rely on their packaging to maintain freshness. Herbs are very sensitive to moisture & odors, so choosing an appropriate packaging container is essential.
The perfect package uses an air-tight lid, is responsibly crafted, sized to fit the contents just right, and adds an elegant touch of your brand to catch the eye. Preserving these foods can be simple, but requires close attention to the few external factors that may affect them.
Air-Tight Seals For Packaging Teas, Herbs, And Spices
Choosing the right closure for your packaging keeps air and moisture out during storage. With uniquely shaped containers, choosing the right fit is crucial to preservation. These popular closures come in a range of sizes and styles.
- Corks are a good option for closures, as they are both functional and decorative. Corks are flexible by nature and provide a quick way to close a container with a firm press.
- Snap-on caps, like the 30mm Clear Snap-on Cap, are also a great option. It’s always nice to choose a BPA and lead-free option. And just like the corks, snap-on caps can be opened and closed very quickly.
- Screw caps, offered in metal and plastic, are the most commonly used tops. With the ability to tighten and loosen at your preferred intensity, screw caps are often the most convenient type of closures.
Choosing The Right Size Packaging For Your Teas, Spices, And Herbs
Too much empty space in your container may create more opportunity for air and moisture to spoil the contents. At Glassnow, we’ve designed a vast range of glass packaging options for use with herbs and spices. To make the right selection, you must consider how the container will be used.
Wide mouth jars allow for scooping with spoons and other utensils. Start with answering the customer experience question: How will my customers consume my product?
The right fit for herbs provides a cozy and fresh setting. Choosing the right packaging size is dependent on the volume of the contents. Explore square, round, short, and tall glass package options in 8.5 oz, 3.4 oz, and as small as 1-2 oz.
Branding Your Product Packaging
Branding is an important aspect of product packaging. Consider keeping it simple with flat-sided designs like Glassnow’s Rectangle Spice Jars. The finishing touch of an elegant label brings the branding up to par with, and effectively communicates, the quality of your product.
When packaging these goods, the container’s impact on the contents can be vital. Ground herbs are highly absorbent, susceptible to any moisture that may leak through the packaging or harmful chemicals that can leach from the container itself. Conveniently, glass packaging is completely inert and impermeable, causing no negative effects due to its material. Glassnow’s packaging is also made with recycled glass, preserving the environment along with providing safer packaging.
For dried goods like teas, herbs, and spices, any of the above packaging options will offer an heir of elegance while addressing the needs of each industry. Additionally, you can always find more options on our Teas, Herbs, & Spices Industry Page on Glassnow.com! Look there for other offerings in multiple industries and package any of your goods in style!
