The teas have been drunk, the votes have been counted and the results are in...we're super excited to announce we've won another 5 Great Taste Awards! This takes our current total up to a whooping 157 - shout out to Louise, teapigs co-founder & tea taster, for making ace teas!
The Great Taste Awards is the world's largest and most trusted food & drink awards. It sees thousands of products blind tasted by a panel of experts to find the very best. Let's check out our latest winners...
Out of over 14,000 entries to this year's Great Taste Awards, only 1.5% won 3 stars (the best you can get!) and we're proud to say oolong was one of the minority - and it just so happens to also be Louise's fave. Some of the feedback from the judges:
"Delicate and smooth, yet absolutely full of flavour. An exquisite high grown oolong with a wonderful sweet character that lingers long after tasting. Floral flavour notes of jasmine and honeysuckle abound. Simply delicious!"

And now for the ones which won 1 star from the judges...
Upbeet is part of our feel-good range, and we can now say all 6 now have Great Taste Awards. One judge said:
"Wow, this packs a punch! The balance is great, layers of beetroot, spice and hibiscus deliver a wonderful complexity. The colour is attractive and bright. Overall a really enjoyable cup, with a zingy, mouthwatering finish. Left us wanting more!"

We only launched this one last year, and it's already gone and won its first award, hooray! One judge said:
"The green tea and peach flavours marry well, the combination is balanced and the flavour true to ripened peach."

Last year our peach + mango kombucha was a winner which means all 3 of our kombuchas are now award winners! Here's what the judges had to say:
Original: "Lovely clarity, a gentle sparkle and a clean fermented aroma. Very enticing. The flavour is fresh and clean and we thought the ferment was enjoyable - the tea is gentle and well balanced. This Kombucha is pure and unadulterated. Very delicious."
Ginger + Lemongrass: "The ginger offers a warmth and a full refreshing aromatic flavour harmonising with the tea. Balanced and rounded, with a sparkling acidity. A really mouth watering and enjoyable drink."
