The North American Tea Championship

The North American Tea Championship is an independent competition, judged by professional cuppers and retail buyers, and distinguishes the highest quality and best tasting teas commercially available in the North American marketplace.

Templar Food Products is a proud winner of the 2012 Iced Tea Class competition, winning 2nd place for its entry "Black-Currant Citron Black Tea" in the Ready-to-Drink Flavored Black tea category.

The judges used a blind organoleptic analysis of the following characteristics: flavor, body, color, clarity, and balance. The ratings of each characteristic were used to calculate an overall numerical value on a 100-point scale. With a winning score of 84, this entry was considered "Very Good: a tea with superior characteristics".

Tea Culture

Templar searches the world over to find the most interesting and latest American tea hit... teas that the US market has not heard of yet. Teas that will appear in a bottle on a US shelf soon.

To assist in this effort Templar has partnered with Jeff Fuchs, a Tea Ambassador, explorer, and author of 'The Ancient Tea Horse Road'. Fuchs is enroute to remote areas of the world looking for new tea. Check back frequently to read stories and view video diaries from every leg of his journey.
