Captured to a 'Tea'

When Imperial Teas, on Steep Hill, decided it was time to re-design their website, their first step would be to refresh their product images.


With Lincoln College’s School of Art and Design right next door…where better to find a group of enthusiastic photographers up to the challenge of photographing no less than 296 different types of tea? And indeed they did! Lead by student, James Drysdale-Banks, with other photography students assisting both photographically and in tea preparation.

“We met with Ben at Imperial Teas and he talked us through the brief: to showcase the texture and colour of the individual teas in an interesting way; capturing the different infusions and tea leaves themselves.”

“This was a great project to work on.” adds James, “It gave us a real taste of working commercially – great experience to help us in our careers.”

“296 varieties and 2 frantic days of tea making later, we have a fantastic library of photographs,” says Ben. “We are delighted – the students met the brief perfectly; were professional and a pleasure to work with. We’ve enjoyed having the young, fresh ideas they’ve brought to the table.”

“We hope we can enlist the expertise of the students again in the future.”

In return for their dedication and fantastic photographs, Ben has rewarded the School of Art and Design with a new flat screen TV for their reception area.
