Teavana Announces Contest Winners

Teavana Announces "Tea Master's Challenge" Contest Winners
(from a press release)

Innovative tea retailer Teavana® is pleased to announce the winners of the "Tea Master's Challenge". This tea blending contest challenged customers to use creativity and their love of tea to make a new taste sensation using up to 4 Teavana teas, sugar and/or honey. Running from June 29 to August 16, 2009, over 2,300 blends were submitted with flavors ranging from fruity to spicy and everything in between. Teavana's tea experts tirelessly tasted the creative blends to narrow down to the final five.

Pearls Gone Wild won the Teavana Tea Master's Challenge!
The Grand prize winner is - Pearls Gone Wild by Meredith Cordray, who will receive a $500 gift card. In addition, her tea will be added to Teavana's new tea lineup in October, being available for purchase as a tea blend online at or as separate teas in Teavana stores. Pearls Gone Wild combines together three hand-rolled pearl teas as their base: Teavana's Jasmine Dragon Phoenix Pearls, Frutto Bianco Pearls, and Black Dragon Pearls. The blend of green, white and black pearl teas is highly antioxidizing, good for digestion and studies have shown can help lower cholesterol, inhibit certain forms of cancer growth, and combat the signs of aging. The fresh taste of jasmine, kiwi, lemongrass and pineapple along with the chocolaty black tea undertones can't be beat, is great anytime of the day, and is delicious hot or iced.
