World Tea Expo

The World Tea Expo is set to begin on Friday. It's being held at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas. I've been fortunate to attend this trade show and educational convention previously, in its earlier days.

A conference poster that I received recently caught my attention. The poster features some of the new products being shown at the vendor booths, including:
  • Finum Iced Tea Control - an iced tea brewing system (by Riensch & Held); here is a link to the hot tea pot, but I couldn't find the iced tea one - perhaps it's too new
  • Sparkling Teas - VidaTea and White Jasmine Sparkling Teas are mentioned specifically
  • Whisky Cakes - by Caledonian Kitchen, available in five varieties
  • Honey flavor spoons - by the Melville Candy Company and featuring the pomegranate clover spoons

I've included links to the products, so those of us at home can still learn about them - and even order them if we're especially enticed. I have had the honey spoons (plain honey flavor) and enjoyed them. As for the others, I cannot speak. I am not a fan of bottled tea, but the sparkling tea has captured my attention.

If you have experience with any of these products, or if you attend the World Tea Expo, I'd love to hear about it!

Wow - those sparkling teas sound great. I will keep my eyes open for them.

The sparkling tea sounds delicious. I may have to replace the usual sparkling cider or grape juice with this at our next celebration dinner.

Pomegranate clover spoons--I'm going to have to check these out. Thanks for the information on what's new.

The World Tea Expo was great. So many fun things to taste and see. There were some little tea cookies with tea flavorings that were good. And of course Marmalady's was there with tea infused jams and jellies.

I don't usually like sparkling RTD teas, but the VidaTeas were not too bad. I'll be getting samples in the mail soon. Maybe I can pass one your way!
