The Great Taste Awards 2020, by The Guild of Fine Foods, has now been announced, celebrating the Food and Drinks industries finest, most delicious must-try products.
As part of the celebrations, we are delighted to announce that the judges gave their seal of approval on eight fine teas and delicious blends from our best-selling everyday classics.
Our two-star Great Taste winners
Our beautifully floral multi-award-winning Jasmine Dragon Pearls and wonderfully calming Chamomile Blossoms were each awarded with an incredible two-star Great Taste Award.
The panel of over 500 industry experts independently issued a further six of our products with the Great Taste Award.
Our other award-winning teas and blends
For those who prefer a sweet, fruit tea beverage with a slight zing on the pallet, our winning Hibiscus Bora Bora is simple and easy to brew fruit tea that can be enjoyed at lunch, or chilled and adventurously mixed with soda water. Alternatively, our blend of Lemongrass and Ginger still delivers a zing, more invigorating than the Hibiscus, that sits well with systems sensitive to caffeine but still needing that morning pick me up.
Japanese green tea
To refresh the mind, body and spirit, our 2020 green teas from the sacred region of Ise Bay, Japan are ideal and a judges’ favourite, with their delicate grassy notes and distinct umami taste. Our Japanese Sencha sets the standard for others to follow.
This very tea also forms the base for our much loved Japanese Genmaicha, which in addition to a classic green tea taste, rewards the pallet with nutty notes from the roasted rice.
As we reach our final Great Taste Award winner for 2020, we have the Vanilla Rooibos. Considered a herbal tea, as it originates from the Fabaceae plant family, our naturally caffeine-free Rooibos tea is sourced from the Western Cape of South Africa and yields an incredibly complex, creamy taste that leaves a lingering natural vanilla sweetness on the tongue. You can savour this hearty infusion until the last drop.
Go on, why not treat yourself to one of our taste experiences today.
