Lahloo Tea wins Gold in the Great Taste Awards 2010

20 Jul

We’ve done it! We have won GREAT TASTE GOLD for 4 of our sensational loose leaf teas . We got the exciting phone call the other day and have been dancing around the room since with huge grins on our faces!

For those of you who don’t know, the GREAT TASTE AWARDS, or the “the Oscars of the Food Industry”, happen every year and are considered by many to be the most important for speciality food and drink. Completely independent and uncompromisingly rigorous, a GREAT TASTE GOLD is trusted by retailers, buyers and consumers alike. For tea a GREAT TASTE GOLD is what a MICHELIN STAR is to a fine dining chef.

Before Gold is awarded, a minimum of 8 experts – usually as many as 16 – taste, discuss and agree.  This year, the Guild recruited even more experts who, worked with key buyers, retailers, chefs and food writers, blind tasted the 6000 plus entries (wow what a task) to ensure they were skilfully and independently assessed.

I’m so happy to say that despite us and our loyal fans being confident that Lahloo Tea has a damn fine and tasty range of loose leaf tea, we can now proudly say we have an award-winning range of really tasty tea! Thank you everyone and don’t forget to celebrate with your extra special cup and saucer and a biscuit or two!

A round of applause please here they are…. the award winners!

      Thanks David.

      Though it wouldn’t be possible to be where we are without people like you at the Arch House Deli believing in us and that serving really tasty loose leaf tea is the way to go. I know how much your customers appreciate how much care you and your team take to offer them delicious tea.
      Thanks again
