There is a growing fan base for Holmfirth Tea including The Mayor of Kirklees and
Worthington Brown Design that recently opened its China office with a guest
appearance from Holmfirth Tea. At its grand opening, Worthington Brown
conducted a blind tea tasting and presented for tasting top tea brands from around
the world against the Holmfirth brew. The clear winner was ‘HOLMFIRTH TEA’ by a
unanimous decision. The Lord Mayor of Leeds was in Hangzhou at the time on
Civic duty and kindly added the opening to her busy schedule (Hangzhou is twinned
with Leeds).” “Holmfirth Tea …It’s the best cuppa i’ve had in ages” she claimed.”

Design during the opening ceremony in China.
It is truly an amazing success story that stemmed from a simple desire to quell
one’s thirst and share a quality product with local people.
