AUSTIN, TX—The Original Ceylon Tea Company, based in Texas, sells an exclusive line of imported tea whose tag line is ‘The Best Tea in the World.’ But is it?

A survey of independent tea tasters has been released that may shed some light on the matter. The Minnesota Tea Drinker’s Coalition sampled 228 teas—both with names you’d recognize and some you might not—to decide who does have the best tasting tea.

Two teas from Kit Riley’s Original Ceylon Tea Company scored a resounding 9.25 out of 10 on the MTDC’s taste-test Richter scale. They are the classic English Breakfast Tea and the fruity Passion Fruit. In fact, of the survey’s top ten list, The Original Ceylon Tea Company appears four times.

1.     English Breakfast (The Original Ceylon Tea Company)

2.     Earl Grey (Bigelow)
