On March 12-13, at the Coffee Tea Cacao Russian Expo 2021 exhibition, the winners of the National stage of the Tea Masters Cup Russia 2021 international tea championship were determined.
In the Tea Preparation category, 16 participants from all over Russia showed their skills in making tea. The participants were faced with a difficult task: to prepare and present to each member of the panel of judges two competitive drinks. One of the drinks - organizer tea, must be made from only one sample of the provided tea in the “To Go” format. The second drink is master tea, which can be made from any tea at the discretion of the Master. Olga-Alyssia Daineko, St. Petersburg, became the Champion of Tea Masters Cup Russia 2021 in the Tea Preparation category; 2nd place was taken by Sytina Alisa, Kantata, Tver; 3rd place - Elena Pazhetnykh, Japanesetea.ru, Moscow.
In the Tea Tasting category, 45 participants demonstrated their tasting skills. The competition was held in a new format: 6 sets of 3 cups each were exposed in front of the participants, where 1 cup with infusion was different from the others. When a participant chooses a cup with a different taste, he pushes it to the side, and at the same time, the time is limited: 3 minutes for the whole process. The new format of the championship turned out to be very entertaining and dynamic. Support groups and the audience did not leave the stage for a minute. All participants appreciated the support of the audience, as well as the possibility of tasting only their own personal set. Nikolay Dolgiy, Orimi Trade, became the Champion of Tea Masters Cup Russia 2021 in the Tea Tasting category; 2nd place was taken by Lozovskaya Ksenia, Chaism.pro; 3rd place - Ilya Goncharov, MAY company. We sincerely congratulate the winners and participants! We wish you further victories and success!
