Our Menu is a Finalist at the 2014 World Tea Awards!
May 17, 2014 | Written by Anupa Mueller
May must be the month of honors for Silver Tips! First, we receive our coveted Zagat rating- no small feat! And then we discover we have been nominated as a finalist for Best Tea Room Menu at the World Tea Awards to be held at Long Beach, California on May 30, 2014. I will be present there since I am already a speaker at the World Tea Expo (WTE). Today I'm writing my presentation notes for the lecture - "Keeping the Customer Engaged". The WTE has now become the pre-eminent trade show on Tea. Unlike the Fancy Food Show which includes Tea among many other food items, this one is dedicated to Tea and will have vendors exhibiting not just tea but teaware, packaging solutions and gourmet foodstuffs. Secondarily, and almost as important, it gives me a chance to re-acquaint myself with old friends and customers and make new friends. This year, they've added an Awards Dinner which is being held on the Queen Mary Ocean Liner and requires formal attire! An interesting side-note to our nomination is that one of the organizers of the event who lives on the east coast, informed me that she hears about our Menu from all kinds of people, even a limo driver who once picked her up at the local airport! I guess our fame is spreading wide.
