The UK’s Guild of Fine Food just announced its 2010 Great Taste Awards, and eight of the teas sold by Canton Tea Company were awarded gold star ratings. Bai Lin Gong Fu Black Tea (pictured in the accompanying photograph) received a three star gold – the highest award in its class, and a rating awarded to only 91 out of the 6000 products entered.
This is a brilliant result for us: Over 25 tea specialists from the UK and Europe submitted hundreds of green teas, yet we still took over half the awards in the category. It shows that buying direct from smaller producers means your tea just tastes better.
– Canton Tea Co founder, Jennifer Wood
In celebration of their success, Canton Tea Company has partnered with Steepster.com to offer a special Gold Award Tea Taster Pack that contains 10 gram samples of each of the eight award winners for $19.95 including worldwide shipping. The offer is only available through Sunday July 25th, and it is an excellent opportunity to try some excellent teas.
