With global tea appreciation not only growing but evolving, traveling to an event like World Tea is an amazing way to watch current trends and stay up to date on tea’s progress. This year’s classes, for example, cover everything from mobile tea to climate mitigation, tea cocktails, coffee leaf tea, organic certification, and tea blogging, all taught by the industry’s brightest thinkers and educators. A new addition, the Tea Up for Health education track, is aimed at helping tea professionals understand and capitalize on tea’s healthful nature. And the World Tea Awards is back for its second year with a fresh lineup of deserving nominees. If it seems like there’s a lot to celebrate in tea, there is, and World Tea can help you direct the excitement toward fruitful opportunities.
