Day & Time: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017 - 10:30am to 11:30am

China is the original home of tea-making, while Japan and Taiwan have developed their own rich tea heritage in modern history. New tea producing regions such as India, Sri Lanka, Malawi, and Nepal have satisfied the low-priced, commodity tea demand of the world, but certain economic and environmental conditions have encouraged tea-makers to hone their craft and introduce higher quality teas to the global market. In this presentation, Global Tea Ambassador, Elyse Petersen, will apply the concept of New World Teas, adopted from the wine world. Learn about the diverse potential of these teas.
