Dallas Texas based La Creme Coffee &Tea wins again at the 2013 North American Tea Championship held recently at the World Tea Expo in Las Vegas. These latest awards for La Creme follow 2010's winning teas; Peach Ginger Detox Tea was awarded I" place in the Hot Tea category and Peach Ginger Green Tea took 3rd place in the iced Tea category.
The 2013 First Place Award in the Flavored White Tea category was earned with La Creme's White Peach Tea. A Third Place Award in the Flavored Green Tea Category was earned with La Creme's Guava Detox Tea.
To be selected as an award-winning tea in the North American Tea Championship, a judging panel comprised of professional cuppers assessed each submission through blind, organoleptic analysis of the following characteristics: dry leaf, brewed color, brewed aroma, brewed flavor, brewed mouth-feel and brewed harmony. The ratings of each characteristic were then used to calculate an overall numerical value on a 100-point scale, and winners were determined by rank.
Samantha Hamilton, Director and General Manager of La Creme Coffee &Tea acknowledged her dedicated team and their desire to create high-quality products. "We are extremely pleased and excited by the recent awards. It creates an environment in which our team members strive to move our company, products and brand to the next level," said Hamilton.
