One of Ireland’s best loved brands Bewley’s has once again collected an impressive haul of Gold Stars at the Great Taste Awards 2016, which took place on July 28th. Seen by many as the ‘Oscars’ of the food and drink industry. A total of 29 Gold Stars were awarded to Bewley’s, recognising the consistently high quality of their range of teas and coffees.
Bewley’s Fairtrade Special Blend Tea was awarded two Gold Stars for its bright, brisk and fresh flavour while Bewley’s Dublin Morning Tea, described as a neat black leaf with a good strength infusion, also received two Gold stars.
Other highly commended teas included Bewley’s Irish Breakfast Loose Tea, Gold Blend Tea, Original Blend Tea, Irish Breakfast Tea and Decaf Tea. Similarly, Bewley’s Gold Roast Fresh Coffee was also recognised by the Guild of Fine Foods in London, the organisers of the Great Taste Awards.
Celebrating the success, Bewley’s Brand Director, Mark Saunders said, “This is the tenth year that Bewley’s teas and coffees have been recognised by the Guild of Fine Food at the Great Taste Awards. Our success in continuing to achieve the highest accolades is a testament to the exceptional quality of our products.”
“We travel the world to source and supply the finest beans and high quality leaves and use our expertise in roasting and blending to achieve the perfect cup. Our Fairtrade Special Blend tea is a multi-award winning tea sourced for a single tea garden high on the slopes of Mount Kenya. Expertly blended by our Master Blender, it’s brimming with distinctive aromas and flavours. A firm favourite amongst our customers, it’s fantastic that it has once again been chosen by the Great Taste Awards judging panel. All of our award winning products are available in most Irish supermarkets for our customers to enjoy.”
