DENVER, Colo., April 8, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Continuing to produce award-winning teas, Teatulia Organic Teas received a second place award from the North American Tea Championship in the 2013 Fall Hot Tea Class for its whole leaf Earl Grey Tea, also known as Earl of Bengal Tea. This win marks Teatulia's fifth recognition as North American Tea Champions over a period of three years.
Nearly 135 teas were entered into the Fall Hot Tea Class of 22 categories. Teatulia's Earl Grey Tea scored over 80% during the judging and was said to be a tea with superior characteristics.
"We are thrilled to have been honored again by our colleagues at the North American Tea Championship," says Co-founder and CEO of Teatulia, Linda Appel Lipsius. "We take tea personally at Teatulia and have always been committed to providing top quality varieties to our consumers.
The Championship is the only independent competition, judged by tea professionals, to distinguish the highest quality and best tasting teas commercially available in the North American marketplace. The Fall Hot Tea Class is evaluated once a year, and every submission is cupped blind and rated by flavor, body, color, clarity and balance. An overall numerical value on a 100‐point scale is calculated to get the winning teas. The results allow producers to understand how their tea compares to others through impartial judging by industry professionals, something that aids tremendously in marketing, operations and product development.
The Earl Grey Tea is a balanced blend of organic whole leaf black tea from Teatulia's own garden and oil of bergamot. It is a refreshing take on the classic tea and is unapologetically flavorful with a splash of citrus. It can be found at many natural and specialty food stores across the country as well as online at www.teatulia.com.
All of Teatulia's teas are USDA-certified organic. The teas and herbs used in their products are sourced directly from their own Rainforest Alliance certified garden in Bangladesh and other like-minded gardens. Teatulia is committed to supporting a thriving global community through their revolutionary health, education, and cattle lending programs in Bangladesh and pioneering sustainability practices.
"It's exciting to continue wining these championship awards," says Director of Marketing and Product Development, Chris Olsen. "It clearly demonstrates Teatulia's commitment to offering the best possible product to all our customers."
Teatulia Organic Teas are sourced directly from their own garden in Northern Bangladesh and other like-minded gardens, with no long-term warehouse storage and no waiting around to be put into the right blend by a third party. The results are exquisite, clean and smooth teas that support education, business and health initiatives and demonstrate a thorough commitment to sustainability. Started in 2000 to give back to the local community, the Teatulia Gardens were established as an enterprise that would give the people a living wage while protecting and strengthening the environment. The KS Foundation was launched to give back to the Bangladeshi community and has created revolutionary education, health and cattle-lending programs for the people working in the garden and surrounding areas. All sales of Teatulia Organic Teas contribute to this mission, helping to better the lives of men, women and children in our community while rebuilding the local ecosystem.
