The Tea Monkey tea shop in Midsummer Place, has been awarded ‘Best Tea’ from the Beverage Standards Association at its annual awards.
Opened by Tracey Bovingdon, Tea Monkey was launched to rival the likes of Costa and Starbucks with a clear emphasis on tea, whilst providing coffee and café fayre in a very modern setting. Tracey has been shortlisted for the Best Green Business Award, which is open to businesses who provide eco-friendly or ethical products and services in the UK.
With an emphasis on eco friendly products and sustainability, Tracey hopes she has what it takes to walk away with the prize. As well as being shortlisted for this category, she is also in with a chance of winning the title of The Inspirational Business Mum 2011.
Having reached the finals of The Mumpreneur Awards, Tracey said “I am delighted to have been recognised for my achievements in business and share this recognition with many other mums who juggle working life and motherhood. Judging Tracey’s entry will be a panel of top entrepreneurs judging including BBC Dragon, Duncan Bannatyne, but she’ll have to wait until 25th September, when the winners will be announced at The Mumpreneur Conference, sponsored by Yell and DHL Express, being held at the Heart of England Conference Centre in Warwickshire.
