      So I suppose you drink this and not the other brand, eh Mr. Lipton?

      Hi, Any indication of what font the new Twinings double Passion Flower Night night tea uses?

      Hi Nicholas, this one? That would be Berliner Grotesk.

      Yes that’s the one! It’d been keeping me up all night – I can rest easy now :-)

      Glad I was able to help! It’s the third time I’ve seen Berliner Grotesk used for packaging design recently. Looks like it has a small comeback in its 107th year.
