The Best Cup Of Tea In The Country Made In Mornington

It’s official – the best cup of tea in the country is made by Tania Stacey, owner of Cuppa Cha in Mornington, Victoria.

Whilst many of us think we make a pretty good cuppa, it turns out that brewing the perfect tea involves a lot more than just infusing a tea bag for 3 minutes. In fact, it doesn’t involve a tea bag at all.

Winning for her blend of two teas, Tania fused a rare yellow tea from China with a Taiwanese Oolong to achieve the unique winning flavour that won her the Cup against 7 other finalists. Tania is well versed in speciality teas, and through her own business Cuppa Cha , she encourages and educates tea lovers and beginners alike to learn more about the origins, harvest, and production of tea to make better decisions about what they drink.

Taking out the title of the nation’s best tea maker during the hotly contested Australian leg of the World Tea Brewers Cup (WTBC), Tania will now travel to Shanghai to compete in the international World Tea Brewers Cup finals.

The WTBC took place at this year’s Fine Food Australia – the country’s biggest event for the foodservice industry – and ran for two days. With tea experts from around the country vying for the right to claim they make the best tea in the land, every cup was judged by a panel of experts spanning the spirits, wine and coffee industry. Tania’s winning cup was just a point ahead of the runner up, proving that Australians really do know how to make a good cup of tea.
