LONG BEACH, Calif., May 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Hunan Tea Company Limited of China – one of the largest, global organic tea planters and manufacturers – is the Official Origin Sponsor of World Tea Expo (#WorldTeaExpo), the leading tradeshow and conference focused 100 percent on premium teas and related products. The Expo takes place May 29 – 31 in Long Beach, Calif. at the Long Beach Convention & Entertainment Center, where Hunan Tea Company is set to launch two new products for the North American market. World Tea Expo is co-located with Healthy Beverage Expo (#HealthyBevExpo), and details are available at and

Hunan Tea – along with its U.S. sales branch, Sierra Tea in Santa Clara, Calif. –  is debuting Organic Hunan Yellow Tea and Organic Hunan Black Tea, both of which are available to U.S. customers.

The Organic Hunan Yellow Tea is an exotic tea with a taste in-between black and green tea, with a smooth, delicate flavor and rich aftertaste. And although yellow tea has been sold in the United States in the past, it's been made without a standardized production process so the quality was inconsistent, according to Hunan Tea Company.

The Organic Hunan Black Tea (Dark Tea) is the ideal selection to replace the more traditional dark tea Pu-erh, but with a more refined taste and sweetness, notes Hunan Tea Company. The new Black Tea – amber in color with a lasting fragrance and aroma – is a fermented tea with a combination of Pu-erh, Darjeeling and Iron Buddha flavors. Hunan Organic Black Tea is already a trendy choice for many Chinese tea drinkers, and it's certified organic and fair trade.

Samples of the Organic Hunan Black Tea (Dark Tea) and the Organic Hunan Yellow Tea, as well as tasting opportunities, are available this week at the Hunan Tea / Sierra Tea booth at World Tea Expo. Or, interested companies may call 408-202-1080 for samples.

George Jage, founder and director of World Tea Expo, says, "We are excited and thrilled to bring Hunan Tea Company to the forefront of the North American market and the global tea community at World Tea Expo. This is the first time we have had an origin title sponsor, and we are proud to showcase the wonderful, exotic and high-quality teas from this region."
