World Tea Expo 2010 winners
Anyone see any old favorites, or new teas they’d like to try? This competition gets a lot of press. Are there other tea competitions out there? Do you think they are a worthwhile way of judging tea quality, or is it more about making money and increasing exposure? Do the winners see increased sales (Maybe Frank can tell us?)
I haven’t tried any of the hot tea winners (which means I better get on it, I guess!) but I’m thrilled that Mountain View Tea Village had one of the winning entries :) They’re local and I love them.
I’ve seen a random purchase or two of our winning Pina Colada Honeybush, but as I understand it, we are supposed to be hit a bit harder when the World Tea Expo’s Tea Buyer’s Guide is published (not sure when that will be). I wish we could have afforded to enter more than one tea. Maybe next year.
