First China International Tea Exhibition will be hosted in Beijing China, the hometown of tea. It is a strong voice of Chinese tea industry to send to the world.

Unified industry and industry standard have negative impacts on Chinese tea export, at the same time; the situation also damaged the reputation of Chinese tea products. Many Chinese have to use overseas standard to judge the quality of local tea products. Facing the embarrassed situation of the Chinese tea in the international tea trade, Chinese tea industry hopes this exhibition will help local industry to talk with its international counterpart about tea industry standard. Chinese tea industry wants to show the unique quality and variety of Chinese tears to the rest of the world tinder the prerequisite of health, Chinese tea industry sincerely hopes the dialogue will discuss the real issues and will be the talks among organizations.
