We are delighted to be among the Great Taste winners of 2017 with not one, but two awards! 1 star for our Signature Blend Coffee and a prestigious 3 star rating for our Matcha Tea, the highest award given by the Guild of Fine Food.
The Great Taste awards are the Oscars of the food world so we couldn’t be happier that the two products we entered in 2017 both received awards. This recognition confirms what our customers tell us every day, which is that our best-selling coffee and tea really does taste great. According to the eminent panel of Great Taste judges, our 1-star Signature Blend Coffee was dubbed as “simply delicious” and 3-star Organic Matcha tea was described as “exquisite and wow!”
After a Taste of the West Silver award in 2014, this Great Taste award is a second accolade for our Signature Blend coffee, which is now one of the best-selling coffees on-line in the UK. We were confident this coffee would do well, it’s a favourite with customers and judges alike because of its sweet nutty flavour and smoothness, with only a hint of bitterness. These are taste qualities we know are popular with UK coffee drinkers.
While the success of our Match Tea has been a delightful surprise. As novices to the world of Matcha Tea our founders, Simon and David, spent months tasting numerous samples from across Japan. They chose a tea with the highest quality organic grade with a very appealing flavour. The soil and climate at the farm in Japan where our tea is grown offers perfect growing conditions. This helps produce a tea which is nutrient rich, vivid green in colour, smooth in texture and with a sweet umami flavour which also lacks bitterness. The award of 3-stars is a major coup for us and it makes our Matcha one of only two available in the UK to ever achieve this highest accolade!
