Something quite special happened this October. East Forgedwas awarded three medals in the DB & SB Autumn Blind Tastingcompetition, run by UK-based publications The Drinks Businessand The Spirits Business.While the Green Tea & Pitaya and White Tea & Calamansi flavours each earned a Silver Medal, it was the Black Tea & Yuzu that impressed the judges and earned the highest Gold Medal recognition!
AtEast ForgedHQ we are drawn to those in our community who acknowledge their connection to Mother Earth.
In this month’s blog we chat toJack Davies firstname.lastname@example.org he’s known on Instagram – an ocean enthusiast, sustainable-living advocate and storyteller, who has added surfing and guitar playing to his list of hobbies in the last few years!
Elevating the tea experience is a top priority for our East Forged Co-founders Kym and Tania. They will jump on any opportunity to talk, write and drink tea. To say they are passionate about tea is an understatement because between them they have three tea companies! They compete in competitions, travel to origin and are actively involved in the industry here and internationally. They love to promote the value of tea as an ingredient and the impact it has for the beverage industry.
We love to experiment at East Forged HQ and often collaborate with people on fun tea projects.
