bright metallic packaging

This beautiful green tea packaging from China looks like gold. It is wrapped in plastic, which has been coated with a very thin layer of aluminium.

Aluminium is highly reflective (up to 95%) and so creates a very bright metallic appearance. It is laminated, printed, welded and vacuum packed just like non-metallised plastic packaging.
