Ramsbury tea firm raises a cuppa to top award

Ramsbury Tea had a celebratory cuppa after two of their new blends won gold stars in this year's Great Taste Awards.
The Great Taste Awards is a national food and drink competition based on blind-tasting and Ramsbury Tea’s lemon and ginger and granny's garden herbal blend came out as top of the teas.
The company is now in its second year of trading and its chief executive, Amanda Fearon, says that a lot of trial and effort goes into finding the perfect blend.
She said: “We wanted a really punchy lemon and ginger and we thought it would be as simple as mixing lemon and ginger but that just didn’t taste right so we experimented with loads of other ingredients until we got something that really delivers the goods.
“There’s lemon myrtle from my native Australia which gives it an extra lemony twist, lemon verbena, and lemongrass which also brings out the spicy tingle of the ginger.”
“Granny's garden is a wonderfully refreshing brew and each of the ingredients stands out, without overwhelming the others.”
