A TEA com­pany has won an ac­co­lade for its prod­ucts.

Cheshire Tea, based on Park Street, Mac­cles­field, is among the win­ners at the Great Taste Awards 2017.

Out of more than 12,300 prod­ucts tested by a team of ex­perts, the firm was awarded a 1-star Great Taste Award for its Cheshire Break­fast, Cream Earl Grey and Pep­per­mint pyra­mid teabags.

Phil Pa­ton, who set up the com­pany in 2014, said he is thrilled with the ac­co­lade. He said: “We are ab­so­lutely over­whelmed with the judges’ feed­back from this year’s Great Taste Awards and we are so pleased to have won the awards for the third year in a row since we launched in 2014.

“It re­ally proves our tea has the ap­proval from the in­dus­try ex­perts. He added: “Since win­ning the awards it has re­ally helped open doors and we have seen an in­crease in sales year on year.”

To cel­e­brate the ac­co­lade, Phil is giv­ing away a free pack of tea to Ex­press read­ers at the next Trea­cle Mar­ket, on Sun­day, Au­gust 27.

The Great Taste Awards, held each year, are widely con­sid­ered as a bench­mark for fine food and drink.
