2019 was a VERY busy but exciting year for us at SUKI. We are always looking ahead but we also think it is important to take time to look back and reflect on the amazing year that we have had.
As we enter our 15th year in business in 2020, it's time to remember all of the great things we have achieved in just one year!
First and foremost... An enormous THANK YOU to all of our staff, customers, partners and supporters. Who without, we wouldn’t have the purpose to do what we do (and love) so much!
We have gone through a huge change this year, one you might have noticed! We’re fiercely proud of what we have accomplished thus far and as we embark on our 15th year in the industry, we thought it was time to breathe new life into the look and feel of Suki Tea. Suki Tea becomes SUKI Tea Makers... It's been a challenge but we are happy with the results and how you love it as much as we do.
It’s been a challenge but favouring ethical supplier practices and operating in a more socially, economically and environmentally sustainable manner are the cornerstones of everything we do, so it was a natural next step for SUKI.
Another change we've been through this year Our new and improved user friendly website is officially up and running. We wanted to make it as easy as possible for our online customers to be able to order from whether they are. We also introduced our amazing new Subscribe and Save offer.
We said hello to new export countries including Spain, Latvia, Denmark and Switzerland which means we export to over 17 countries now!!
Something we were SO excited about was our collaboration with Bushmills Irish Whiskey for the return on their #BlackBushStories series which celebrates those creators and inventors who challenge traditional thinking and live outside the box.
Oscar joined Bushmills on the 'Black Bush Blended' tour to host a series of whiskey and tea blending masterclass events across Ireland throughout April and May. This is where our Black Bush Blend was created.
We were delighted that our Spiced Pumpkin Pie & Rooibos were both awarded Gold Stars in the 2019 Great Taste Awards. We were so pleased that the judges loved these blends as much as us.
We launched 6 new tea blends this year. Including our delicious Raspberry Ruffle and Green Tea Lemon. And many more in the works for 2020. If you got a hold of one of our Tea Advent Calendars you may have got to try a few of these..!
With all of this in mind, we can't wait to see what 2020 has in store for us!! Stay tuned for more exciting news and fun adventures.
Happy New Year! Here's to 20-TEA 20-TEA!
