The James Beard Foundation has specially selected Mighty Leaf Tea as one of its exclusive House Purveyors, which serves to provide product to chefs cooking at the Beard House. In turn, Mighty Leaf Tea will serve its collection of premium whole leaf teas at events and special programming at the James Beard House for the 2009. At the heart of this new partnership is an overarching goal to support the growth of the culinary arts in communities throughout the United States.
Mighty Leaf Tea first embarked on its partnership with the James Beard Foundation in November 2008 with the "Dumplings & Dynasties" fund-raising dinner and auction. At the event, Mighty Leaf's premium blends were introduced to the James Beard Foundation's friends and donors. Mighty Leaf Tea will continue to work closely with the James Beard Foundation to provide tea to noted chefs affiliated with many of the finest restaurants and top-rated hotels in the country.
