World Tea Expo 2013

World Tea Expo 2013 Tea merchants from all over the world, large and small, are here in Las Vegas this week for the 2013 World Tea Expo.  My sister and I and thousands of other tea enthusiasts have flocked here as well.
I was near giddy with excitement when Rajiv Lochan of Lochan Tea gave me a cup of the Darjeeling tea, second flush, from the Jungpana Estate in Darjeeling. I couldn't say “yes!” fast enough to a gift sample bag of the tea leaves. 
We started our day with a seminar on tea cupping and how it is used in commercial quality control. 

We then combed through the vendors on the convention floor. We spoke with the winner of the Expo's 2012 Best New Product. Brandon Ford, the owner of Vintage Teaworks creates wine inspired tea blends.
We chatted with the ladies of Octavia Teas and got samples of their ginger peach white tea and blueberry green tea.  
We took in the colors of bowl after bowl of tea leaves on display.

We smelled the aromas of leaves.
