We have received glowing reviews for what we have achieved since we started our company e.g. online sales of our tea for internationally, the 3 month internship program in our rural tea village, Wazuka, and our tea club membership program.

As you might know, tea cannot exist without the people who farm it but also the people who drink it. We would not have won the prize without all your support, love, and passion for tea so we really appreciate that you chose our tea and enjoy it.

In the photo you can see our president, Akky, who is not usually in the office because he is always taking care of our tea fields to be able to make delicious tea for everyone. He stopped by the office when it was raining and was thrilled to find out about the prize and he even gave us a classic Akky pose with great pleasure!
