Stirring stuff as Ramsbury Tea scoops awards
Success is brewing for fledgling tea company, which won a clutch of medals at the 2012 Taste of the West Awards.
Ramsbury Tea, which is not yet a year old, won a silver medal for its Rose Congou Keemun, which was so highly rated it only narrowly missed taking the gold.
The company's Lapsang Souchong, which was complimented for its smokey aroma and character, took a silver medal while its Lemon Grey was awarded a bronze.
Director Amanda Fearon said: “For our first year, we’re absolutely delighted to have won anything at all! In fact, we nearly didn’t enter this year but we got a reminder on the last day for entries and thought we’d give it a go after all. If only all last minute decisions were so successful!”
As well as selling direct to the public online and at farmers markets, the team are increasing the number of select local retail and catering outlets which stock Ramsbury Tea products.
On the back of a successful launch in 2011, Ramsbury Tea have already doubled their range of teas and are adding new accessories like mugs and tea canisters.
In addition to their prize-winning trio of teas, and best-sellers like English Breakfast, Earl Grey and Peppermint, they offer specialist brews like Pu-Erh and Formosa Choice Oolong.
They’ve also sourced an organic single-estate Assam and a decaffeinated Ceylon and supplemented their herbal tisanes with Fennel.
