Japanese Green Tea Company held booth at Northwest Tea Festival 2019 in Seattle from 9/28/2018 - 9/29/2019.
This is the second year at this event. Here are some of the pictures from the 2018 fair and my personal thoughts from the first-time experience of this type of event so that you can see how it was like at the fair, and read about my thoughts and all the lessons-learned from this event.
Last year was our first consumer related fair experience. We were very overwhelmed with all the tea lovers who came to the fair, but at the same time very excited to meet and hear what people had to say about our products. Thanks to all the help from everyone involved, the fair was a very successful event for us.
Here are some of the pictures from the fair and my personal thoughts from the first-time experience of this type of event so that you can see how it was like at the fair, and read about my thoughts and all the lessons-learned from this event.
We have spent a lot of time and effort to make a good presentation. I think that the idea of having actual lemon and mikan made the booth look a lot brighter.
One of the most commonly asked questions from the World Tea Expo which we had earlier in Las Vegas was...
"What is Mikan?"
The answer: Mikan is Japanese Orange which the English name is Citrus Unshu.
I wished I could show the actual Mikan at the booth, but I couldn't get one in the middle of the desert in Las Vegas. So this time, I bought it specifically to show at the booth.
This time, with the actual Mikan around the product display, Japanese Green Tea with Mikan sold out first. (If you are interested, it is available online here.)
Preparation for the booth was a lot easier than Las Vegas World Tea Expo.
The simple reason why it was easier is - we drove to Seattle!
One of the hardest logistics of participating in this kind of event is how to get the things to the booth. For the Las Vegas show, I had a very hard time figuring out what to ship, what to bring and what to order to be delivered at the booth.
This time, we just packed everything in the car! Easy. : )
We wanted to make sure that the water is good quality for giving away the sample, so we decided to bring the entire water cooler with us.
Here are pictures of the empty floor while setting up.
The day before the fair, the floor looks empty.
It looks so different when the preparation is going on.
The show floor starts at 10 am, we got to the fair about an hour earlier to get ready. People were already lining up for the fair. Wow.
Many people lining up to get into the Northwest Tea Festival
We just encountered the stuff bringing up the famous Northwest Tea Festival Tea Pot sign!
Here is how the show floor looked after the show is opened. (See how different from above empty floor before opening) There are so many people that it was even hard to move around the booth.
Northwest Tea Festival - the floor is packed with people
Here are some more pictures of our booth. Thank you so much for everyone stopping by! I wished we had more time to chat, but we were so busy preparing samples for everyone.
We were lucky to be situated in a corner booth so we could show more products on the side.
Here is a picture of me at the booth. : )
Overall, it was super fun and exciting event. Thank you very much for everyone who came to the booth.
I look forward to keeping in touch and be connected with you all. Thank you!
Here are some of the other events we participate and the pictures/videos from the past events.

Matcha tea makes a deliciously creamy hot beverage. But did you know that it tastes just as good as an iced drink?
Learn everything you need to know about making the perfect cup of cold brew matcha in this comprehensive guide.
We are happy to announce that we have switched our most popular matcha product from tin can to paper tube. Here is the new paper version look like, aren’t they looking great?
As you know, creation of packages go through months of designing, prototyping and production. These packages are 100% made in Japan with Washi paper technology and very eco-friendly. Since when we started this process, I had been researching about how Tin cans are bad for the environment, so I thought of sharing what I found out here in this blog post.
