Tea Time with Tea-rrific Tandems by Steuarts Tea for World Tea Day

In recognition of the storied history and deep cultural and economic significance of tea around the world, the United Nations proclaimed May 21 as World Tea Day to celebrate the enduring and timeless beverage. Tea is, after all, the second most used drink in the world after water. Now that's reason enough to celebrate with a soothing cup of tea. You can even make it more special with the Tea-rrific Tandems of Steuarts Tea Philippines... 

Steuarts Tea Philippines is brewing something cool and special for World Tea Day with the launch of the Tea-rrific Tandems campaign, a unique collaboration with local food and beverage establishments showcasing the versatility of tea. Enjoy the world's beloved beverage with traditional brewed tea or take it for an inventive spin with milk teas and as a flavoring ingredient to indulgent pastries. Read on for the detailed lowdown on Tea-rrific Tandems by Steuarts Tea Philippines...  

Since its founding in 1835, George Steuart & Company remains one of the world's foremost exporters of Ceylon Tea with an extensive portfolio of tea-based products. The enduring company has played a major role in the development of Sri Lanka's tea industry emerging as the third largest tea exporter in the world accounting for one fourth of the country's total exports. Tradition runs deep, down to the tedious process of harvesting tea plucked by hand to ensure only the very best buds and tender leaves are used for the final product. 

George Steuarts Philippines was incorporated in 1989 driven by the vision of promoting good health and physical well-being to Filipino consumers by offering high quality, pure, and all natural Ceyon tea products at reasonable prices. Steeped in tradition while boldly facing the challenges of the future, George Steuarts Philippines is committed to serve the best quality tea, service and experience to their customers and partners.
