One warm evening in early September, we found ourselves at the Great Taste Golden Fork Dinner in London, surrounded by other 2018 Great Taste Award winners and members of the food industry.
The reception and dinner incorporated products made by the top regional Great Taste finalists and the overall winners from each UK region were announced during the evening. We had a wonderful time meeting the producers and hearing their stories. And of course, we were able to taste a fantastic selection of foods. These ranged from traditional charcuterie, smoked fish and bannock bread to innovative relishes, fine drinks and even ice cream!
At Tokyo Matcha Selection, our brand mission is to showcase small producers from different corners of Japan and make them available to the world. For us, it was very special to see how great food, farmers and businesses are being celebrated on the other side of the world.
After an inspiring experience with Great Taste in the UK, we look forward to continuing our work to bring you the most delicious tea possible.
