Hälssen & Lyon


Innovation is our tradition

Since the foundation of the company in 1879 we have been ahead of our times and still are. Hälssen & Lyon created new markets with the following products:

The Hälssen & Lyon Tea Calendar

It all started with the idea to merge the traditional product tea with one of the world’s oldest promotional gifts, the calendar. And it led to the creation of a unique annual calendar - made of real tea. It consists of 365 calendar pages formed from tea, pressed very thinly and delicately flavoured. This sensational new product idea was launched in a joint project with the creative agency Kolle Rebbe, Hamburg, and has won several international design awards since.

The Tea Calendar was produced as a limited special edition. It was laboriously handcrafted and is not for sale. This first edition will be followed by an extensive development period until the Tea Calendar is ready for the market.

In the meantime, we invite you to have a look at all the other innovative products Hälssen & Lyon offers to clients - from our patented tea-to-go system to state-of-the-art flavouring techniques.
