NA Tea Championship Winners

In 2012, two of our teas placed in the North American Tea Championship! It’s a competition judged by professional cuppers to distinguish the highest quality and best tasting teas commercially available in the North American marketplace. Our Genmaicha won first place in the Green Tea Category for Packaged Single-Service Class and our Wild Forest Black won third place in the Black Tea Category for Packaged Single-Service Class!

In celebration of this honor and Hot Tea Month, we’re giving awayTea Champ Awards three sets of one box of our Wild Forest Black and one box of our Genmaicha. To enter to win, just let us know your favorite place to drink tea during the winter in a comment below. Is it at your desk, curled up in your favorite chair, or somewhere else? We’ll pick three random winners on January 31st to receive these award winning teas!




  • I love having a great cup of tea while curled up with my three dachshund pups on the sofa with a fire going in the fire place and reading a good book. It is the perfect way to stay warm and relaxed during the winter!

  • Genmaicha is definitely my go to tea @ work. It gives me the kick-start I need to start my day. It is so smooth, i drink it through out the day.

  • My favorite place to drink tea is in front of my bay window with my new husband, watching the snowflakes fall like a dusting of icing sugar. It’s literally like enjoying tea with the King!

  • My favorite place to drink tea is outdoors, especially while on a brisk walk by the ocean in winter. I love making the decaf oolong tea with fresh lime juice and raw honey, pouring it into my insulated travel mug, bundling up, and heading out with a steaming mug of tea to enjoy on a little stop along the way during my daily walk 🙂
