Zealong clinches “Oscar” at prestigious food awards

It is all glitz and glamour around the Zealong offices after our tea was recognised as one of the finest beverages in the world at the ‘Oscars’ of the food industry.

Unbeknownst to us, our oolong tea was entered into the UK’s prestigious Great Taste Awards in London by international tea and coffee retailer Whittard of Chelsea, which sells Zealong’s product.

Subsequently, our tea was awarded a two-star rating. The highest rating is three-stars with only 35% of this year’s entrants receiving accreditation (one, two or three-stars).

These awards are widely recognised as the ‘the Oscars of the food world’ and the ‘epicurean equivalent of the Man Booker Prize’.

The judges’ comments were incredible, with high praise for the oolong’s “buttery and nutty notes” and “soft fruit, peachy flavours”.

We are extremely proud to have achieved this esteemed accolade.
