World Tea Expo 2013 – Tea Pots and Tea Pops
Did you think it would only be about the tea leaves at the World Tea Expo? Well, tea pots and tea pops would prove you wrong.
What’s a Tea Expo without beautiful tea pots?
In the middle of the convention floor filled with tea merchants selling tea beverages, Fuji Merchandise Corporation displayed a large selection of Japanese tea wares. I couldn’t help but stop and take a picture of their teapots. I thought for sure these pretty porcelain tea pots would be expensive. The tea pots, however, were offered at only $10 - 12.50. But, this importer of Japanese wares only sells to retailers, so I imagine these prices may get marked up.
How about a tea pop?
The Winner of Best New Product by the 2013 World Tea Expo is TeaPops by DeeBee’s Organic Frozen Treats. This company out of Victoria, British Columbia, Canada makes pops from green, white and black teas, as well as rooibos. DeeBee’s Founder, Dionne Laslo-Baker, PhD, was inspired to make the pops when looking to give treats to her young sons. Dionne calls herself a “fanatic about the food her family eats.” It’s not surprising then that these pops are ridiculously health and spirit conscious as they are organic, kosher, vegan, dairy free, gluten free, soy free and nut free. Discerning customers who appreciate Dionne’s fanaticism will purchase for the quality of the pops. If they purchase one box, they will be yearning for more. Dionne gave me a sample of her pops at the Tea Expo and they are undeniably yummy - to kids and adults.
