World Tea Expo

Why do suppliers exhibit?

“World Tea Conference + Expo is the primary gathering of people from the tea industry from all around the world. If you’re in the tea industry and you’re not attending the expo, you’re truly missing out on the immense opportunities for education, collaboration and, frankly, business. World Tea Expo is where we met our first customers and till today, we continue to attract new B2B customers and get much-needed exposure for our business. It has become a platform where we launch and showcase new products, and mingle with our dear old tea friends while always making new ones! I am personally super excited for this year since we’ll be officially launching a record-holding tea, presumably from the highest elevation in the world, allowing customers to taste teas from the foothills of Mt. Everest.”
Nishchal (Nish) Banskota, founder of Nepal Tea Collective

“We view the World Tea Conference + Expo as a great opportunity to connect with industry leaders and learn about new trends in the specialty tea market. Rooibos North America was one of the leading pioneers in bringing Rooibos to the U.S. starting in 1997. We are now established as the largest ‘direct-from-origin’ source of unparalleled quality Rooibos, Honeybush and Lemon Myrtle products.”
Hugh Lamond, president of Rooibos North America

“We are grateful that the World Tea Expo brings together people from across the tea industry in one big tea party. It’s the only event where we can take time to sit down and share tea with fellow lovers of the leaf. It’s also the only B2B event where we can sample our most prized teas to an audience appreciative of the craft of artisans.”
Noli Ergas, account manager at Sugimoto Tea Company

“I am excited to be attending the World Tea Conference + Expo for the first time as an exhibitor, after joining the last few years as a guest. I am looking forward to showcasing our Alaska inspired tea and herbal blends. It will be incredibly humbling to bring my piece of Alaska to this large international tea event. As a young tea business, I am looking forward to continuing to build relationships within the world of tea. I am stoked to be meeting with new retailers, suppliers and tea friends!”
Megan Weston, founder of Felicity Loft Tea

“Firsd Tea is happy to return to World Tea Expo for another successful event. Each year we come back to reconnect with tea clients and friends from across the U.S. and the globe. It is also a great place to make new connections! We look forward to presenting our wholesale and specialty teas. And this year is especially exciting for us as we showcase our new line of bubble tea products for both established bubble tea businesses and those looking to add new bubble tea options to their menus.
Jason Walker, marketing director at Firsd Tea North America

“ConjureTea is so excited to make our debut at this year’s World Tea Expo! We will be showcasing all of our wonderful, hand-crafted tea blends, as well as some brand new products that we cannot wait to share with the world. It is important for us as a small business to be a part of this amazing expo because we want to show the industry what we are bringing to the table and how valuable what we create could be to the tea industry. We are also excited to see what all of the other brands and industry titans will be blowing us away with this year. World Tea Expo is the best environment for tea businesses to mix, mingle and network, while having a great time doing what we all love, and we are so grateful for the opportunity to be a part of it!"
Chef Shania Thomas-Floyd, owner of ConjureTea

“We are excited to see all of our colleagues and associates in the tea world, as well as making new friends. We wish all involved a very successful show, as well as a wonderful and prosperous 2023 and beyond.”
