Tea Company of the Year

A few weeks ago, you had a chance to vote on your favorite tea company to win 'Tea Compnay of the Year'. However, I used a free surveying platform that was free until the first one hundred responses - as I only expected maybe twenty or thirty responses. Well, I recieved over 300 responses, and unless I pay a hefty price, I'm unable to see the results. So who wins tea company of the year? Well, every single one of these companies are very special and all did something worthy of high praise for their work in 2017. So without further explanition, I think it's safe to say that all of the tea comapnies who were nominated all tie 1st palce for company of the year!

  • White2Tea

  • Bitter Leaf Teas

  • Mandala Tea

  • Crimson Lotus Tea

  • Pu-Erh.Sk

  • Taiwan Tea Crafts

  • Yunnan Souring

Thank you to those who tuned into my blog for the year of 2017! I really appreciate your support, and I think I have the best readers out of any blogger out there. Thank you so much. I will see you all in 2018!
