SerendipiTea secures 2022 World Tea Award
The World Tea Conference + Expo, held last month at the Las Vegas Convention Center, celebrated its milestone 20th anniversary. This year, the winners of Questex’s 2022 World Tea Best of Awards, which recognise tea professionals for their contributions to the industry, were announced during the special anniversary celebration.
SerendipiTea was among the winners, achieving Best Charity Based Social/Community Program.
“All of us at SerendipiTea are so very grateful to all in the global tea community who voted for us. Learning that we had won the Best Charity Based Social/Community Program was deeply heart-warming and truly meaningful as charity and service plays a large role in our overall mission,” commented SerendipiTea’s partner/co-founder Linda Villano.
SerendipiTea, an artisanal New York-based importer/manufacturer, was founded in 1995 by Tomislav Podreka and Linda Villano on a specific set of principles which stress Environmental and Social responsibility. The logo was designed to express this very notion: the cup represents tea; the pen represents continuous learning which is communicated to others in writings/various forms of media and the hand represents the need to give back so that balance in life may be achieved. To this end, SerendipiTea selects only tea sources which share its principles, the brand participates in many local charitable events and has created numerous blends which benefit specific local and national charities. “Our sincere thanks to all who voted and to all companies that include a charitable component in their business practices,” said Villano.
