A new World Tea Awards dinner and ceremony will be held on the historic Queen Mary ship, recognizing some of the best in the global tea industry, May 30 at 7 p.m. The World Tea Expo's Best New Products will be revealed, along with a number of community-voted award categories. The evening also features plenty of "red carpet" photo and social media opportunities, tea celebrities and tea infusions prepared by BKON. All of which are among the many highlights of the three-day World Tea Expo, the leading tradeshow and conference focused 100 percent on premium teas and related products, with fresh ideas, new trends and distribution channels. The expo takes place May 29 to 31 in Long Beach, Calif. at the Long Beach Convention & Entertainment Center, and is co-located with the annual Healthy Beverage Expo. Details are at WorldTeaExpo.com and HealthyBeverageExpo.com.
