China Mist - A Sofi Silver Medal Finalist

Each day we have been visiting top San Diego Executives and CEO’s who are members of our “Tasting Board”. We thought it would be interesting to have them sample and comment on some of the products that are competing for the Gold Sofi Award. The products we have chosen are silver medal finalists, who were chosen from thousands of other products, to be the best of the best. For more information on The Sofi Awards read my previous post on the awards . 

Lotus Pear tea, by China Mist, A Sofi Silver Finalist, comes in a beautiful, custom shaped, recyclable glass bottle. The green tea is from select tea gardens of Asia and is brewed with pure filtered water. It is the perfect union of the fragrant Lotus Flower, succulent pear and top quality tea. It is 100 percent natural and organic, without sugars, carbohydrates, calories, or artificial flavors or preservatives.

Darin Anderson, Kim & Celeste Taste Lotus Pear Tea

We are very excited to announce that Darin Andersen, COO of ESET, has joined our Executive Tasting Board. We already knew that Darin and his entire team are very health conscious. So the Lotus Pear beverage by China Mist seemed the perfect choice to have  him sample.  We did the tasting session in their beautiful meeting room which has  a gorgeous view of San Diego. 

Two top staff members, Kim and Celeste, joined the tasting. We poured the beverage over ice. Kim, who has a sweet tooth, said she would probably add a little sweetener to it, but thought it was good. Celeste, a real health nut, loved it and loved the fact  that it did not contain sugar or artificial sweetener. Darin said he really liked the beginning aroma and the finish.  He liked that there was no metallic or artificial taste, which so many beverages have. Instead, he said, there was a nice aroma with hints of pear, and that it was very light and smooth with a great after taste. They all said they would definately use the beverage.
