This year, the Sydney Tea Festival will showcase not only artisanal teas, but also the latest innovative tea-inspired offerings from the likes of Archie Rose Distilling Co., The Canberra Distillery, Tea and Wine and Ovvio Organics. So, expect to find yourself sampling French earl grey gin, chai-infused cabernet sauvignon, and chamomile-infused chardonnay. There will even be a tea-leaf reading workshop for those interested in the art of foretelling the future.
Looking for something a little more exotic to take home? The festival is focused on presenting rare and pure teas, exotic blends, high-altitude teas from abroad, chai teas made from family recipes, Japanese matcha, traditional Chinese tea, Australian-grown teas, and healthy herbal tisanes. You’re guaranteed to find something unique to take home and try.
Festival co-founder Renee Creer said, “I think festival-goers will be amazed at the diversity and quality of teas and tisanes on offer, and the creativity of the blends and tea-inspired products available. There’s no other time or place where tea lovers can taste dozens of high-quality teas under the one roof, and chat in person to the people behind Australia’s best tea companies.”
The festival is open from 9am to 4:30pm on Sunday August 18 and entry tickets cost between $16.95 and $20.95, and include a festival tasting tea cup. Education program tickets range from $15 to $69.
