Appreciation Ceremony @WTE 2010

A Ceremony of Appreciation (with a touching story) was taken place at the center stage of World Tea Expo at 2:50PM on 6/13/2010. Thanks to the show management to give us the time of using the stage to enhance tea's greatest value - bridging the World.

In August 8, 2009, a tremendously strong typhoon hit Taiwan dreadfully and created extreme and dramatic damage. The casualties were beyond imagination. The hardest hit areas were the central and southern Taiwan…where many many tea gardens are located.

During the arduous and difficult time, Taiwan received great love and compassion from around the world, including our wonderful and kind friends from the tea industry….Mike Spillane/G. S. Haly, Bill Waddington/TeaSource, Robert Krul & Cory Krul/CTC. They generously sent money in need to Taiwan without hesitation.

To express the deepest gratitude and respect from the people of Taiwan, Taiwan Tea Manufacturers’ Association is here to present a plague to Mr. Spillane, Mr. Waddington, Mr. & Mrs. Krul. The plague is just a small token to appreciate the unconditional love to our friends of Taiwan.

(The three gentlemen from Taiwan:
Master Jackson Huang, Senior Adviser of TTMA., Ted Fan, Secretary General of TTMA., and Professor Lynn Lin, International Adviser of Council of Agriculture, Taiwan. )
