The Pinnacle of Quality, Flavor and Aroma

“The World Tea Expo Beverage Challenge celebrates the pinnacle of quality, flavor and aroma from teas around the world,” said Questex’s Vice President of the Bar & Restaurant Group, Tim McLucas. “This prestigious competition allows brands to highlight their finest teas on a global stage and gain international recognition from industry experts.”

A panel of expert judges will evaluate tea entries by their independent merits of leaf style, make, cup character, liquor, appearance and overall finish. The highest scorer across all tea types and origins will be named Grand Champion.

Grand Champion, Best Leaf and Best Liquor award winners will have their teas sampled live to thousands of attendees at World Tea Expo 2024 in Las Vegas. Winners will be included in a press release and receive editorial coverage at World Tea News.

Winners will be announced live at World Tea Expo 2024 before the keynote presentation on Tuesday, March 19, 2024, at 8:00 a.m.
