An informative sampling focused on herbs and tea with an occasional sprinkling of fairy dust and a glimpse into family activities too. The contributions to this blog are the combined efforts of the sisters of The Rosemary House and Sweet Remembrances.
Our trip to Philadelphia was for the express purpose of attending the World Tea East expo at the Pennsylvania Convention Center the first week in October. This is a 'must-do' experience for any future and or established tea related business. In addition to attending, Susanna was one of the seminar speakers, expounding upon Geo-Location Target Marketing.

A few of the seminars that we attended included Branding, Messaging & Marketing a Tea Business presented by Peter Martino of Capital Teas, and also Steep Social Media Without Getting Bitter by Verna L. Hamilton. There was a Focused Tea Tasting of Oolong Teas of China and Taiwan that was both interesting and informative. The subtle nuances of the various Oolong teas could be noted in the samplings provided. Overall, it was a very interesting conference. In addition to the seminars, there was a trade show where we were able to connect with various tea vendors, sample tea infused ice creams, try a wide variety of teas, and hob-knob with tea professionals.

Evenings were free to savor the taste of Philadelphia where we opted to try a mozzarella basil pizza. Delicious! Barb Will of Sugar Grove Herbs in Somerset, PA joined us on this adventure, as did Janet Young of Over The Teacup.
