    'infusing' and 'packed'

    On package of Dilmah tea, it says:

    Traditional, authentic Ceylon tea, infusing real leaf character & taste, packed at origin, rich in antioxidants.

    Why do the word 'infusing' use '-ing' form and the word 'packed' use '-ed' form?

    Does it mean this:

    Traditional, authentic Ceylon tea, (which infuses) real leaf character & taste, (which is packed) at origin, rich in antioxidants.

    Thanks for your help.

    "Infusing" doesn't work there. I think you understand what the writer intended correctly.
