Great Taste are the world’s most coveted blind-tasted food awards and they celebrate the very best in food and drink. We are super proud to announce that our amazing, inspiring, delicious and by all means the UKs favourite Earl Grey has wowed the judges at the Great Taste Awards.

When a grateful Chinese-Mandarin gave Earl Grey a gift of black tea infused with the rind oil of the bergamot orange, little did he know the unique blend would become an award-winner centuries later. Savour the delicious aroma of bergamot, before settling down in a comfy chair.

Why not make yourself a cup of Earl Grey so that you can experience the nuances of delicious flavour and taste that impressed the tea connoisseurs at the Great Taste Awards?

Great Taste Awards

Judged by some of the World’s most demanding palates, belonging to food critics, chefs, cooks, restaurateurs and producers, as well as a whole host of food writers and journalists, Great Taste is widely acknowledged as the most respected food accreditation scheme for artisan and speciality food producers.

The Great Taste Awards have been called “the Oscars of food”, as well as the culinary answer to the Booker Prize in the past, with the 2016 event involving over 400 hand-picked expert judges. The epicurean festival sees products blind-tested in small teams, ensuring that every single one benefits from an unbiased, rounded and comprehensive judging.

What makes the Great Taste Awards different is the complete focus on flavour above all else. Marketing counts for nothing at this unique event, meaning that it really is all about quality and taste. We were delighted that our Earl Grey was recognised at these prestigious awards and hope that every one of our customers enjoy the blend just as much as the judges did! 

Great Taste Awards Judges - Charlie Turnbull, Clodagh McKenna and Joanna Blythman
