Each year at the World Tea Expo I have found a way to explore the local culinary scene. Whether it was in Las Vegas or it's in the Long Beach/Los Angeles areas there's been something special. In 2014 I had Korean, Japanese, Russian, Cambodian, Mexican, Greek and Ethiopian. You can review last year's tour via my Yelp List. By request…
For those of you who follow this blog, you know I love to visit the World Tea Expo every year to bring you news, photos and tales of my experiences from the event. This year will be a little different…
This year's World Tea Expo is my 3rd trip to this event. I've appreciated the opportunities to learn and meet new people each year. I've made friends and contacts from every corner of the world and every continent save for Antarctica. The events and sights from this first day of the expo are similar to those from the past two years. Full of energy, vibrant colors and effusive scents tantalizing for everyone here.

Check out my coverage of both Day 1 and Day 3 of the 2011 World Tea Expo.
Every year at the World Tea Expo Thomas Shu, a tea dignitary from Taiwan, sings songs related to tea. He does this very well with a wonderful voice and this talent tends to draw additional visitors to the Taiwan Tea Association booth. Here are two videos I took of Thomas' songs at the expo last weekend.
The past two years I've made the trek out to Las Vegas for the World Tea Expo. If you've not read my coverage, you should check out the 2009 coverage and the 2010 coverage. This year's expo is June 24th, 25th and 26th. I'll be in Vegas a little longer to provide some extended coverage.
The event is a huge mishmash of industry awesomeness all in one place. It's not just tasting teas. The expo has everything from business seminal sessions to special speaker events, new blends and coverage of tea trends.
