Farmer Bros. Co. recently took home four first place honors in the foodservice iced tea category at the 8th Annual North American Tea Championship in Los Angeles, California. Top spots were awarded to Farmer Brothers in this independent competition by a panel of professional cuppers and tea industry leaders.

The winning tea products were evaluated against other national tea brands on characteristics such as brewed color and aroma and dry leaf quality.

“We are thrilled with the recognition.” Farmer Brothers’ Tea & Culinary Product Manager, Tass Rupp, adds, “Restaurants are really starting to see that tea is one of the most profitable items on their menu, so we are happy to see ours getting top reviews.”
