We are very excited for the fourth annual Northwest Tea Festival taking place this weekend at Seattle Center! If you’ve never been to the festival before, this is a true celebration of the world of tea. You’ll find vendors of all sorts of teas and tea wares, fun and educational presentations and workshops conducted by experts in the tea trade, and of course, tea tastings!
Admission is free, but a $10 donation gets you a porcelain tasting cup and gift bag, and also gets you into the tea tasting sessions. The workshops fill up every year, so you may want to make a reservation in advance. For a complete schedule of presentations and workshops, visit here. Some folks even come both days of the festival so they can participate in as much as possible!
The Northwest Tea Festival has a new location this year, in the Fisher Pavilion at Seattle Center. It takes place Saturday, October 1st from 10am-6pm and Sunday, October 2nd from 10am-4pm. We are proud to be a major sponsor of this special event and hope you will join us this year!
Update 10.13.11: We had a wonderful time at this year’s Northwest Tea Festival. If you weren’t able to make it this year, come out the first weekend in October 2012!
