The Sydney Tea Festival is an interactive experience designed to help people discover and experience specialty tea; encourage and grow passion for tea through education; and showcase quality specialty tea providers. The festival day has two elements, a tea market and a program of ticketed workshops.
The festival is held in August each year. The date for 2017 is coming soon.
The tea market features dozens of stallholders – tea brands with specialty loose leaf tea and tisanes of all styles; food purveyors with tempting sweet and savoury treats, along with food trucks for something bigger to snack on; ceramic artists and makers of beautiful homeware and teaware. There’s also a Brew Lounge where you can sit and enjoy a cup of tea and listen to music. Tickets to the tea market go onsale in the weeks leading up to the event. Festival tasting cups are included in the ticket price.
Open from 9.00am - 4.00pm
The workshop space is where you can immerse yourself in the world of tea with some of Australia’s leading tea specialists, as they host educational talks, tastings, demonstrations and hands-on sessions. Tickets are available before the festival, online.
Open from 9.30am - 4.30pm
