The Global Tea Championship™ is an independent competition, judged by tea professionals, to distinguish the highest quality & best tasting teas commercially available globally.
Each event judge cups hundreds of teas blind and scores the teas based on the analysis of dry leaf; liquor color, aroma, flavor, and mouthfeel, as well as overall harmony.
Healing Butterfly® entered their Earl Grey Matcha Green Tea Powder into the ‘matcha blend’ category.
Tea evaluations were held September 16 and 17, 2017, in Boulder, Colorado. The Healing Butterfly® office received official word on Friday September 22, 2017 that its Earl Grey Matcha blend received a silver medal as part of this competition.
Healing Butterfly® owners, husband and wife team Dr. Michael and Mrs. Jackie Hirsch, were thrilled to learn that their matcha did so well in the competition. “We knew we needed to do something innovative with matcha when we started our business,” Jackie stated. “So we began experimenting with different matcha flavors. In addition to the original plain matcha, we have created Vanilla, Chocolate, Mint, Ginger, Pumpkin Spice, and Earl Grey matcha blends.” Michael adds “we are thrilled that our Earl Grey Matcha blend won the silver medal. It is validation that our matcha blends are high-quality products. We source all of our matcha from an organic family farm in Japan, and it is important that this quality comes through in our final products.
