“This is the highest honor in the tea industry,” said founder Maggie Le Beau. “We are delighted and honored to receive the award, which further confirms the quality of our tea,” said Le Beau. She said that she is particularly pleased, given that black tea is the most popular type of tea in the world.
Le Beau says that her company is helping put Nepal on the map for its exceptional teas. “There’s growing recognition among the experts that Nepal’s small artisan farms and unique terroir produce some of the best teas in the world,” she said. “Teas from Nepal have started to earn awards over the past few years, reinforcing the opportunity for Nepal to benefit through growing its tea economy.”
