The votes are in and teapigs are proud to announce they have been awarded an impressive 18 Great Taste Awards.
All of teapigs’ teas are carefully selected and slurped by Louise Cheadle, teapigs’ co-founder and chief tea taster who has over 15 years of professional tea tasting experience.
“We’re really excited about these awards,” says Louise “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 recognized for the work we’ve done so far.”
One of the blends to receive an award was teapigs’ everyday brew. Their signature blend and equivalent to an everyday “builders’ brew” received a two 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 a lovely Rwandan blended to give a balanced, malty, zesty alliance.
Some of the finest black teas in the world are sourced from Rwanda, and teapigs are committed to giving back to the communities that bring them their premium, whole leaf tea. teapigs donate 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 this awesome 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.
