Ripple White Tea from KDHP Company, Munnar has bagged the silver medal in the Global Tea Championship 2019 Fall Hot Loose Leaf Tea Competition and was ranked No 1 in the Loose / White tea category held at Boulder, Colorado, USA.

Although ranked No 1 in the category, KDHP bagged the silver medal based on the points scored on a 100 point scale.

The Global Tea Championship is an independent competition judged by industry professionals which helps establish standards of excellence in the tea industry through an acclaimed and professional evaluation of the best tasting specialty teas of the highest quality.

The event judges score the teas through an organoleptic analysis that includes the analysis of dry leaf, liquor colour, aroma, flavour, and mouth fee, as well as overall harmony. Ripple White Tea was rated as a “beautiful leaf with exceptional flavour and exceptional aroma”.

K Mathew Abraham, KDHP Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) said that the award for Ripple White tea which is produced from the finest selection of handpicked tea buds and retails at Rs 12,000 per kg is a vindication of the company's concerted efforts in producing some of finest specialty teas from its tea plantations spread across Munnar, ranging from an elevation of 4000 to 7200 feet.

Combining 16 state of the art tea manufacturing facilities in Munnar, KDHP, one of the largest producer-exporter from South India, produces 25 million kg of tea annually. To meet the growing demand for specialty teas, the company sells their range of teas through the various “Chai Bazaar” Ripple Tea outlets in Munnar, and also through retail shops.
