The Global Tea Championship (GTC) presented 28 medals during a recent evaluation of premium iced teas across various categories. GTC is an independent competition that evaluates and distinguishes the highest quality and top tasting specialty teas. The competition took place for the first time at the BUNN headquarters in Springfield, Ill., Oct. 31 - Nov. 1. A total of 10 Silver and 18 Bronze medals were presented to best-in-class iced teas --- all of which are commercially sold around the world (no Gold medals were awarded during this evaluation).

BUNN, the 2019 GTC iced tea evaluation host, is a global leader in beverage equipment. The company has a portfolio that features a home brewer collection and a full line of dispensed beverage commercial solutions, including coffee and iced tea brewers.

Judges who tasted and evaluated the iced teas included Mim Enck, owner of East Indies Coffee and Tea Company in Harrisburg, Pa.; Anthony Capobianco, a tea consultant with Zen Tea Traders in Los Angeles, Calif.; and Kris Houser, vice president of marketing communications at Bunn-O-Matic Corporation in Springfield, Ill.
