QTrade Sponsors World Tea Expo 2012

It’s that time of year again. The highlight of the tea industry in North America is fast approaching: World Tea Expo June 1-3, 2012 in Las Vegas, NV. Not only will we be participating in virtually all elements of the show, this year we are also platinum sponsors of the Expo. No other event brings together the members of the North American specialty tea industry like the World Tea Expo. Replete with classes, tastings, lectures, and exhibitions, this is a must-attend event for anyone serious about  the tea business.

Visit QTrade at booth #609

Below are several ways for you to get involved in this year’s events and interact with the team members from QTrade Teas & Herbs at the same time.

World Origins Tasting Tour

This fanciful flight around the tea-producing world is an informative experience for the beginner and veteran alike. The Tasting Tour takes students to tea-producing countries through lectures, tastings, and multi-media presentations. Representatives from each country bring the teas from their homeland and show what makes them unique.

QTrade is honored to be presenting on Sri Lanka once again this year. Our founder, Manik Jayakumar was an influential tea estate manager in that country for many years. He also worked as a consultant on the first organic tea plantation in the world there in the 1980s. This year’s presentation will be delivered by Pujitha Ubayasiri and Royce Van Twest, both veterans of the trade with decades of experience in the Sri Lankan tea industry.

Come see us on Thursday May 31st at 10:30am.

Winner’s Tasting Circle

One of the most frequent requests we receive at QTrade is for the chance to sample our award-winning teas. This year’s World Tea Expo will give attendees the unique opportunity to taste all 20 award-winning teas from the past year.  Hot & Iced. Straight, Blends, and Tisanes. You don’t want to miss this event. For more information on the North American Tea Championship please follow this link.
