And You Can Quote Me: “This is my first visit to the Hong Kong International Tea Fair. It represents a marvellous opportunity to get new ideas and understand the latest market trends. The seminars have been very informative and useful, enabling me to learn about the development of Southeast Asia and other markets. The Japanese pavilion, in particular, offers something very unique and appealing. I found an Oolong tea supplier from Hong Kong with whom to explore business cooperation. This is a rewarding trip.” (Jamie Lan, Business Manager, Xi Tang, Taiwan, talking about last year’s fair.)
