winner winner chicken dinnerCall it the “Sommelier Bump.”

While it could simply be a coincidence, soon after this video was posted on The Voice of Tea, traffic jumped and popularity rose. So much so, in fact, that it won $15,000.

The Tea Council of the USA announced the winner this morning, and the winners couldn’t be happier.

The video was produced by aspiring actor Edan Freiberger and engineering student Nicholas Chen, residents of Foster City, CA who attend Stanford and UCLA, respectively, who obviously have an exceptional affinity for tea.

From all of us here at Tavalon, congrats to Edan and Nicholas – keep up the good work and keep steepin’!
