It was a joy to visit Susan Rios at her booth and see her new line of teaware. Doesn't the teaware make you feel happy? Glory International has done a great job of taking her illustrations and turning them into actual teapots and teacups.

Susan Rios and more World Tea Expo
Here is Susan Rios. You can visit her website at www.susanriosinc.com.
The World Tea Expo brings many wonderful tea lovers together to share ideas and talk tea. For no other reason the World Tea Expo is worth attending.
The first evening we shared tea at the Four Seasons Hotel with friends Carol and Bob Sims of the Tea Embassy in Austin, Texas.
The second evening was a reception and awards ceremony for the tea expo. There were many awards given, but I think Rishi Tea walked away with many of the awards. They had a great booth and I was impressed with the teas I saw there. Marmalady's will be carrying their teas sometime in the future.
The third and final evening was a gathering for the West Coast Tea Business Association. That was exciting as it is a newly forming association and about 50 people were there from a variety of tea businesses. After the meeting we met in the suite of Devan Shaw for a time of getting acquainted.
