World Tea East Is Coming To Town

Hey Everybody!  World Tea East is having its second grand event in Philadelphia, Oct 2-3.  It will be at the Convention Center.   I am hoping to go this year, so there will be no floods, tornadoes, hurricanes or tropical storms to get in the way.  Last year I was marooned on our hill, along with several others for several days.

There will be a New Business Boot Camp for those wanting to start a business or who have recently done so.  Jane Pettigrew will be presenting this.  The world will be toured in tea tastings for an entire day, Oct. 1, from 8 am to 5 pm.  More tea will be tasted in focused classes.  The winners for 2012's North American Tea Championships will be introduced to the Eastern and Southern  states and there will be a real emphasis on tea quality.  There will be over 100 tea merchants present.

Although this is primarily aimed at business owners, there is likely to be a great deal for those of us who are not.  Consider going, so you can see and taste the new teas and tea-related products, meet up with tea professionals and network with other tea lovers!

Please go  to   for more information - you'll be glad you did.  As I learn more, there will be updates here, as well.
