GLOBAL TEA CHAMPIONSHIPS


 
Natural Caribbean tea brand, Twigs Naturals, is the first Caribbean tea brand to be recognized internationally by winning not just one, but two awards at the 2017 Global Tea Championship for their natural, Caribbean-grown Mint & Caribbean Christmas tea. The winning Twigs Naturals Mint Tea placed third and was the only awardee in the SINGLE SERVED BAGGED HERBAL TEA Category while their Caribbean Christmas Tea, an artisanal blend of Wild Hibiscus & Fennel (Sorrel & Anise seeds) placed second in the SINGLE SERVE HERBAL BLENDED BAGGED TEA Category. The Global Tea Championship is an annual independent competition, judged by tea professionals, to distinguish the highest quality & best-tasting teas commercially available globally.
 
 
Although very confident in their brand, this accomplishment came as a surprise to the one-year-old Twigs Naturals. The company which officially launched in 2016 elected to use the forum of the competition as a means of promoting its brand to the international market. CEO, Nigel Jordan, was elated that the Twigs Naturals teas were recognized on the world stage. “To be told that our teas grown in the Caribbean, such as our Caribbean Christmas tea, have a multi-dimensional layer & organoleptic sensation, and is superior to typical flavours seen in its category is an incredibly good feeling. It’s an honour for Twigs Naturals to be the first Caribbean tea brand to be acknowledged on such a global scale, and to share the taste of tea grown in the region with the rest of the world,” said Mr. Nigel Jordan.
