teapigs achieves 18 Great Taste Awards
At this year’s Great Taste Awards, tea brand teapigs was awarded with 18 accolades for its products.
Louise Cheadle, teapigs’ co-founder and chief tea taster said: “We’re really excited about these awards and we’re looking forward to bringing even more quality teas to the range. We do our best to source the best quality and best tasting tea out there and it’s brilliant to get feedback like this. Since day one we’ve been on a mission to get people drinking real tea again so it’s fantastic to be recognised for the work we’ve done so far.”
One of the blends to receive an award was teapigs’ signature blend, everyday brew, which received a 2-star rating with the judges describing it as “a bright infusion” that has “briskness, good malitness and grip”. It’s made up of three delicious teas: Assam, Ceylon and Rwandan blended to give a balanced, malty, zesty alliance.
teapigs are committed to giving back to the communities that produce its premium, whole leaf tea, and the company donates 5-15p from every pack of everyday brew they sell to the Point Foundation; an organisation that supports orphans and vulnerable young people in Rwanda. To date they have raised over £285,000 from pack donations alone and have done various other fundraising events to help the cause.
teapigs’ everyday brew is also 100% Rainforest Alliance certified – meaning that the tea estates their everyday brew is sourced from have been audited to meet standards that require environmental, social, and economic sustainability.
