Great Taste Award Winners 2019


Great Taste is the world’s largest and most trusted food and drink award. Organised by the Guild of Fine Food, this award is the acknowledged benchmark for fine food and drink.

They put thousands of varieties of food or drink to the test each year, with a panel of over 500 experts blind tasting products, as well as straightforward and impartial feedback from chefs, buyers, food writers and retailers. You can receive a 1-, 2- or 3-star accolade, with 3-stars being the most highly respected seal of approval.

This year, 12,000 products were entered and reviewed, and only 200 were awarded 3-star accolade. So, you can imagine our delight to discover that our Traidcraft Breakfast Blend Tea was one of those products! 


Our Earl Grey and Decaffeinated Tea Blends also won 1-star awards, and our Traidcraft Chilean Nectar Set Honey was awarded 2-stars. Check out all of our Great Taste Award winning products here.

We're extremely grateful for all of the judges' comments, so we thought we'd share a few of them with you.Traidcraft Honey - Quote from Great Taste Awards Judges
Traidcraft Breakfast Blend Tea: “There is evident quality here: the wonderful infusion is bright and brisk, solid and alive on the palate.” 

Traidcraft Earl Grey Tea: "A bright, pleasant tea with just enough Earl Grey character. Works well with milk."

Traidcraft Chilean Set Honey: "
A golden, luxurious, toffee textured honey with a chewy quality and a lovely gloss. Beautifully floral notes, with a light sweetness and a pleasant, grainy quality. A curd like honey, a very potent aroma, floral and with bags of character.”

“There’s a wonderfully enticing, pollen-rich aroma here, amid a gloriously creamy, curd-like texture. The initial impact on the palate is surprisingly simple, but there is an intriguing minerality at base that contributes both salinity and a mild bitterness, and indeed a rather long and intriguing, if surprisingly gentle, finish. A rather lovely honey.”
