The North American Tea Championship, previously called the World Tea Championship, is an independent competition, judged by professional cuppers, to distinguish the highest quality & best tasting teas commercially available in the North American marketplace.

The Tea Championship is made up of three classes: Hot Tea, Iced Tea, and Packaged Single Service Tea. The Packaged Single-Service Tea class is evaluated once a year in November.

Winners of the Tea Championship are announced after each respective evaluation, personally and in the press release. Winning companies receive a formal announcement letter that includes the tea’s rating and ranking as well as a print-ready seal that can be used for all promotional materials and packaging.

Winning companies also have an opportunity to showcase their teas at the annual World Tea Expo, the premier trade event for the industry, in the North American Tea Championship Tasting Winners’ Circle if exhibiting.
