The 2018 edition of the annual World Tea Awards, was hosted by World Tea Expo on June 12th. We were so proud to have been nominated in 4 categories, and delighted to be announced the winners of two!
Kevin and Jasmin were in Las Vegas to attend the ceremony, and to meet fellow tea aficionados and friends from all over the World. Our passion for sharing leaf and knowledge has made us many friends in every part the tea industry so when we were announced winners, the crowd’s rowdy, enthusiastic reaction was quite moving.
Best Tea Shop
Having been crowned winners of the Best Tea Blog, Best Tea Book and Best Tea Website over the past few years, we had the immense honour of being voted winner of "Best Tea Shop” by the international tea community. A great achievement and perfect timing for our 20th anniversary (on November 16 this year).
We owe this award to our our fabulous in-store team, past and present, devoting themselves day in and day out to sharing our values and their passion for tea with our loyal community. It is always great to win awards and be recognized by our industry, but this award is a little sweeter as the World's tea community is directly recognizing the heart and soul of what we do.
The impact of our little company throughout the rest of the world always surprises us when we are at these events. Tea lovers from all over the planet know us and so many make the pilgrimage to Montreal and Quebec to visit our teahouses and Tea School. There are very few tea houses with such a large selection backed up by such an enthusiastic and knowledgeable team…there is certainly nothing quite like this in Toronto, Boston, or even New York.
So congratulations and thank you to our fantastic team - you certainly deserve the all the praise and credit. And of course thanks to our loyal clients and tea community that make what we do possible.
For the third year in a row, our online store has been recognized again as Best Tea Industry Website. Secretly, behind the scenes, our website is getting a new look, with new sections and an improved user experience. So stay tuned!
