These are fantastic Soren!

... Salgapril1006

An awesome bit of research bro i love how you have mapped out the history behind them it just shows that finds can still be brought to the surface all the time!

Its also really cool that you have 23 bags saved i assume that means other collectors will potentially be able to own if you do decide to part with some of them!

Thanks for the share buddy

Very cool Soren, I know Europe got quite a few weird and wonderful SW beverages along the way, SW was used to sell most things but
this is the first time I have heard of Yoda Tea !

Do you think perhaps this was some kind of mock up packaging made by a local Danish company and the idea was just too "out there"
to be considered and mass produced? It does seem very weird even for the 80's - I mean kids don't really drink tea ! lol

Great find nonetheless of a very weird and interesting SW concept.

Awesome find Soren and fantastic research to go along with it! Pretty amazing!

I wonder if the tea is a special blend to make you "One with the Force"?

Difficult to see. Always in motion is the future. No so with this difficult it is. Many things see you will...

Excellent piece of knowledge gathering!!!

I wonder what type of consumers this Danish company had in mind for their Yoda tea, we can only speculate.....

That's really cool Soren. I love the Yoda artwork on the front of the package.

Even though this would be considered modern, I think it'd be great to display it with a bag of Dark Side Roast. Smile

Hi Guys
Thanks for all the nice words it has been fun digging up this this stuff and what history i was abel to get . I would have loved to have found Mr Or ms Iversen and Larsen .
And hear the story and what this thing was all about and who made the drawing / painting of the smiling Yoda on the front .

But a few days ago i got a mail back from the association of Danish tea importers and dealers. They had never heard about the company , neither had their members.

So then it was time to share the find and story with you guys Smile

Joe , i have had the same thoughts . Kids don't drink tea , so i'm just as lost as you. But i think that it is very wired that the have the copy right / LFL thing on the bags. This indicates that they have had some kind of knowledge that they had to get permission to use the Star Wars loge etc. And must have had some dealing with LFL to get logo and to know what to write as copyright infomation . But why did they not get the Star war thing right ?

It is ended a very weird product chi tea stufff . And i love it Smile

Cheers

Soren

Merlin: It says on the bag : Big leaf Luxuius China tea with bergamot oli and dried white flowers..... Thats it .

Soren that has to be coolest find for 2011 and a great piece of Scholarship. Thanks so much for sharing.

My advise would be to hold on to the whole lot until you get enough publicity. Once there's a demand and if you still want to sell any of the bags you can get a decent price for them to invest back into you collection.

Cheers Soren. Along with the Kays catalogue ATAT mailer discovery today this is an interesting, cool and unusual find! Just goes to show what stuff can still be found out there.
