Jack and Judy Strand had made their dream reality.  Nestled in the foothills of Mount Hood, their tea empire resembled an old-fashioned apothecary shoppe, with exotic teas, tisanes and spices nestled in glass jars that graced wooden shelves.  The Strands were passionate about their tea, which was shipped directly from the tea gardens of Asia, Africa and other far-flung parts of the world.  They had a loyal clientele, but the ordering process was clunky.  A customer visiting the website could not order directly online, and had to resort to the phone or fax to place the order, which, although personal, required more time and effort on both sides of the transaction.

Strand Tea approached BPC for an e-commerce website that wouldn’t look like an e-commerce website.  Important to their look and feel were original watercolors by Judy, and with the help of our graphic design partner, Julia Stoops, these renderings were converted to banners, and Judy’s delightful sketches were peppered throughout the site. Now, two years after launching, Strand Tea boasts its best year ever, despite the downturn in the economy.
