All Global Tea Championship winners will be featured in an upcoming Global Tea Buyers Guide. In addition, all winners will have the opportunity to showcase their winning teas at World Tea Expo 2018 in the GTC Winners' Tasting Circle (if they are exhibiting or attending the show). They'll also have a chance to win a People's Tea Choice Award, as voted upon by World Tea Expo attendees.

"I would like to congratulate the winners of the recent Global Tea Championship competition," said Scott Svihula, founder of Orlando, Fla.-based Hula Consulting, an independent tea consultancy, and one of the GTC evaluators. "You should be very proud of your teas, as they're some of the highest quality and best tasting specialty teas."
Sponsors of this Global Tea Championship evaluation included: Equipment Sponsor - Wilbur Curtis, a leading manufacturer of tea brewers and accessories. Water Sponsor - GC Water, which provides the best water treatment products in the industry, as well as innovative ways to customize water for product enhancement.
Other GTC judges for this evaluation included Rob McCaleb, founder and president of the Herb Research Foundation in Boulder, Colo., and Gilbert Kendzior, owner of All Points Tea Consulting in Wilmington, N.C.
The next Global Tea Championship will take place in March for the Fall Harvest Loose Tea Evaluation. Of note: A new category for 2018 is the "Unique Tea Open Class." This category is for teas such as small batch teas, teas with unique processing methods, one-of-a-kind teas, etc. Some examples could include African Purple Tea, First Flush Japanese Black Tea, Tai Ping Hou Kui Green Tea from China, Lotus Tea from Vietnam, etc. Svihula said, "What's great about this category is that there are no limits to how many teas a company can enter, and how many medals can be given out."
