World Tea Expo 2011 Recap

Now that the dust has begun to settle, our booth has returned to the warehouse, and we have finally caught up on our sleep, we thought it would be a good idea to recap our time at the World Tea Expo.

It was a whirl-wind tour of all things tea for QTrade Teas & Herbs last week in Las Vegas. As was mentioned in a previous post, we were kept very busy during the show.

New Business Bootcamp

Our week started out on Wednesday afternoon where our friendly sales manager Ron Eng spoke to students at the New Business Bootcamp. The Bootcamp was an opportunity for people interested in the tea industry to get an in-depth look at what the industry is like from the inside. We heard comments throughout the week from entrepreneurial tea enthusiasts about how helpful Ron’s lecture was.

World Origins Tasting Tour

Thursday morning we kicked off the World Origin’s Tasting Tour with a presentation on the tea-producing country of Sri Lanka. Over 120 people were in attendance and bursting with interest about the tea industry around the world. It was a joy interacting with people who were so eager to learn. Our CEO Manik Jayakumar and our blendmaster Royce Van Twest gave the presentation which talked about the unique qualities and terroir of Ceylon teas.

Winner’s Tasting Circle

During the show itself we had a wide variety of tasting times scheduled for our award-winning teas. This was a great opportunity to spend time with the other contestants and taste some wonderful teas. We especially want to thank Jie Chen for setting up and organizing this event.

We also participated in the Tea Infusion Challenge and sponsored the STI Classes. All in all it was a great show! We want to thank George and Kim Jage along with everyone else at World Tea Media for running this event for our tea in North America. We had a fantastic time  interacting with our current clients and new faces in the industry.
