June Is World Tea Month in Las Vegas

June Is World Tea Month in Las Vegas, Says Mayor Carolyn G. Goodman
(from a press release)

Will tea ever be as big as coffee? This week in Las Vegas, attendees of World Tea Expo (June 1 - 3), the largest global event for the tea industry, are asking just that. The event is held annually in Las Vegas by locally-based World Tea Media. In fact, tea might be winning the battle against coffee this week as Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn G. Goodman says -- via official proclamation -- June is "World Tea Month," in honor of the event's 10-year anniversary.

Mayor Goodman's official proclamation states: "In honor of World Tea Expo's vision to develop the tea community and bring greater awareness to the tea industry, we declare June to be World Tea Month, to support World Tea Expo's mission to strengthen the message of tea."

World Tea Expo also kicks off National Iced Tea Month and features a special Wu-Wo Tea Ceremony, hosted by the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority.

The Expo covers every aspect of tea -- from leaf to cup -- and it gathers some 4,000+ delegates from more than 50 countries. Indeed, all things tea will converge upon Las Vegas for a packed exhibit hall with the very best leafs, blends, pots and tea-related products, as well as the fiercely competitive 2012 Tea Infusion Challenge. Some 200+ vendors are set to showcase hundreds of the freshest new tea products -- unique tea wares, delicious baked-goods, innovative tea products and specialized accessories and gifts. Many Las Vegas hotels, restaurants, spas, retailers and others are also attending World Tea Expo -- the real "tea party" -- to see the next big tea trends and tea products, and to learn about quality tea and how to profit from it.
