The Tea Room Honored by London’s Academy of Chocolate

Monday, June 27th 2016 @ 7:17 AM

The Tea Room and their organic Chocolate Fusions went up against some of the leading chocolate-makers in the world this past month at London’s 8th Annual Golden Bean Awards Competition. When all was said and done the judges at London’s Academy of Chocolate honored The Tea Room with a silver medal in the Flavoured White Chocolate Bar category for their Chamomile & Honey organic white chocolate bar, and a bronze medal in the Flavoured Drinking Chocolate category for their Premium Matcha Green organic white drinking chocolate.

The Academy of Chocolate was founded in 2005 by five of Britain’s leading chocolate professionals. According to their website (, the academy ultimately “united in the belief that eating fine chocolate is one of life’s great pleasures…” and “what brings the Academy [together] is the belief that few producers really understand the difference between fine chocolate and confectionery, and as a result it is difficult for consumers to find a selection of fine chocolate…” but that “…once you have discovered what pleasure, complexity, richness and wide sensations there is in fine chocolate, you never look at chocolate the same way, you never buy chocolate the same way. We want to bring this opportunity to as many people as possible, with no vested business nor commercial interest.”

The Tea Room was Awarded the Following:

Silver Medal ~ Flavoured White Chocolate Bar ~ Chamomile & Honey, organic white chocolate bar: White Chocolate Bar Infused with Chamomile Tea and Honey: a calming combination of organic chamomile plant blossoms and West Coast Wild Honey, steeped into the subtle complexities of organic white chocolate.

Bronze Medal ~ Flavoured Drinking Chocolate ~ Matcha Green Premium, organic white chocolate shavings: White Chocolate Shavings Infused with Matcha Green Tea and a Touch of Orange Oil: a premium fusion of the most delectable kind, and an item not seen anywhere else on the market: Matcha infused White Drinking Chocolate.

It’s been an exciting and successful stretch of months for The Tea Room that has seen them receive a Silver sofi Award from top industry leaders in America’s Specialty Food Association, a Superior Taste Award from the International Taste & Quality Institute in Brussels Belgium, and now the Silver & Bronze Awards from London’s own Academy of Chocolate.

Responding to The Tea Room’s recent success, its creator, Heinz Rimann remarked that “It’s great to see such response from different corners of the world!”, “we put much effort into creating chocolate blends that are unique but still accessible to as wide an audience as possible…. “to get recognition from such a variety of diverse palates is very exciting for us.”

A true pioneer within the gourmet chocolate segments’ world of infused offerings, The Tea Room has worked hard over the last decade to introduce and educate its friends & fans on the unique flavors available to them—flavors that surface subtly within a perfectly steeped cup of tea, and lend themselves seamlessly to the complex flavor tones of organic chocolate. The Tea Room believes that there’s a world of flavor out there… and it’s their mission to bring you this world in the form of delectable, sense-stimulating creations of unparalleled quality and enjoyment.
