We’re very excited about the next big event for Choice Organic Teas, because it’s something that’s very close to our hearts (and backyard)! The Northwest Tea Festival here in Seattle is now in its second year and we are very proud to be sponsors once again.
The Northwest Tea Festival is the region’s premiere festival celebrating the world’s most popular beverage, and this year’s event is shaping up to be bigger and better than ever. A number of tea experts including Norwood Pratt and John Harney will be making presentations while offering classes and leading tastings (I’m looking forward to the one about Taiwanese oolongs myself), as well as several local vendors selling their wares. It’ll be a great two days for tea lovers of all ages and levels.
The festival is on October 3-4, the first weekend in October, and takes place in the Seattle Center’s Northwest Rooms at the corner of Republican St. and Warren St. There is a $5 donation, which gets you a goody bag with a ceramic tasting cup to take home. It’s perfect for sampling all the great tea the tasting areas and the vendors will be offering.
If you’re just discovering teas or are a devotee (or anywhere in between), the Northwest Tea Festival is for you. Stop by and say hi!
The festival also still needs volunteers, so if you’re interested in joining in on the fun, contact Julee Rosanoff at the Perennial Tea Room by calling (206) 448-4054 or emailing: email@example.com.
