I recently had the privelege of delivering a presentation at the China Tea Expo in Beijing. The thrust of my presentation was 1) to provide the chinese government and tea industry with current data regarding the growing trends of tea consumption in the United States and, 2) suggestions as to how they may best enhance their ability to play a significant role in that growth.

China is the original home of tea and has been one of the world leaders in tea production and consumption within their own country as well as the rest of the world. Now that specialty tea consumption is growing around the world and especially in America, China must understand the needs of the american consumer in order to better capitalize on the opportunities this new growth presents to them.

I encourage you to view my powerpoint presentation or my entire speech to get a better understanding of the issues I presented at the China Tea Expo.
