Tea Blogger's Choice Awards 2012

You may recall from my "Favorite Tea" post that the Association of Tea Bloggers would be presenting the 1st Annual Tea Blogger's Choice Awards. The results are finally in! I believe that this award is really special because it was voted for democratically by the tea blogger community. My very talented boyfriend designed and donated the logo for the award. Did your favorite teas make the cut? Not all of mine did but I've certainly discovered a few that are on my wish list. In addition to this award, the ATB will be selecting "Best of Show" exhibitors at the upcoming Coffee and Tea Festival Atlantic City. It's going to be a great event and I hope to see some of you there!
