For the second year in a row year, two leaves tea company™ has been recognized with an award at the North American Tea Championship. Last year, the company’s Jasmine Petal green tea won a first place award in the 2012 Packaged Single-Service Class competition. This year, Paisley Brand Tea™ Organic Chai took second place in its category.
Paisley Brand Tea Organic Chai combines high-quality black tea with traditional Indian spices like clove and cinnamon. “We are crazy about our new Paisley Chai, so we’re delighted it has gotten this acknowledgment,” says two leaves™ Marketing Coordinator Christy Garfield.
Paisley Brand Tea is a new range of teas from two leaves tea company. It is high quality, organic and fairly traded tea in simple paper tea bags. While two leaves is known for its sachets of premium, organic, whole leaf tea, the company recently set out to offer paper tea bags that champion the company’s high standards.
“At two leaves we take tea personally, and that’s reflected in our creation of Paisley Brand Tea,” says CEO and founder Richard Rosenfeld. “Paisley Brand Tea is everything we want in a simple paper teabag: it’s bright and multilayered, organic and fair trade, and brews up fast and strong.”
Tea submitted to the competition in the Black Tea Flavored category can be black tea of any variety and from any origin that is blended with herbs, fruits, essential oils, spices and/or any other flavoring agents. Each submission is evaluated based on brewed color, aroma, flavor, mouth-feel and harmony by a panel of professional cuppers in a blind taste-test.
“Considering all of the flavored black teas that are available today, we consider this a particularly competitive category,” says Garfield. “This award will certainly help us get the word out that Paisley Brand Tea is a superior line of paper tea bags. It’s everything we want in a tea bag, and we know tea lovers will agree.”
