It was celebrations all-round for premium tea brand Newby Tea at prestigious independent tea competition The North American Tea Championship this week, who came away with seven (yes seven!) awards from its Packaged Single-Service Tea category and saw its Kan-Junga and Jasmine Blossom teas take first place!

Kun-Junga: No.1 in NATC's Black Tea - Single Origin category

Jasmine Blossom: Top-rated Jasmine Scented Green Tea

Named North America’s no.1 tea alongside Jasmine Blossom – Newby’s most popular green tea and a fusion of prime green tea leaves and night blooming jasmine flowers – Newby’s Kan-Junga is a perennial favourite originating from high altitude terroirs in the Himalayas, with a complex flavour, characterised by floral and muscal notes.

Other winners included Newby’s exclusive English Breakfast, Oriental Sencha and Milk Oolong blends, as well as pan-fired Hunan Green and Peppermint herbal infusion.

Stealing a few words from Newby Tea’s founder, Mr Sethia told FOUR: "the latest awards reflect our enduring mission to select, preserve and present the world’s finest teas."

With over three generations' experience in the tea industry and a global endorsement at the world’s finest five-star hotels, fine-dining restaurants and exclusive, luxury retailers, it’s no wonder family-owned business Newby Tea is making its mark as one of the world’s top-rated tea producers. And with over 200 teas in its range, we can’t help but expect that next year’s awards could be somewhere in the region of 70, let alone 7. We await the announcement in fervent anticipation…
