Tea lovers will soon be able to spend a day exploring and tasting a range of specialty loose leaf teas under one roof at the inaugural Melbourne Tea Festival on Sunday, 20May 2017. Held in the heart of the city at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, South Wharf, the interactive event will feature some of the most exciting and creative specialty tea purveyors from Melbourne and beyond.

Festival-goers can wander around the tea market and taste some of the best artisanal teas around, buy teaware, accessories or hand-crafted homewares and join a tea workshop.

The Melbourne Tea Festival involves two key features:

Tea Market – Enthusiastic about all things tea? The tea market is where you need to be as it features more than 50 stallholders selling and sampling tea and food. Festival-goers can buy a $5 ceramic tasting cup to sample tea all day long which also doubles as a collectable souvenir. Visitors will find specialty loose leaf tea and herbal tisanes of all styles, food purveyors with tempting sweet and savoury treats, ceramic artists and makers of teaware as well as food trucks for something bigger to snack on. There’s also the brew lounge where you can sit down with a cuppa and listen to music.

Tea Workshops – Want to immerse yourself in the finer details of tea? Sign up for a hands-on session or tea tasting held by some of Australia’s leading tea specialists. Workshops cover a range of topics and sessions will be announced in April, with tickets available for purchased in advance via Eventbrite.

The festival is being brought to Melbourne by Tea Festivals Australia, organisers of the Sydney Tea Festival, an event held in August at Carriageworks, which continues to go from strength to strength. The annual Sydney Tea Festival is the largest tea event in the country and last year attracted over 10,000 visitors.

Renee Creer, festival co-founder and owner of Perfect South said, “Australians drink more than seven million cups of tea each year so it’s fitting that there’s an event specifically for tea drinkers and after two successful years in Sydney, we are hugely excited to launch the festival in Melbourne".

Tea Lovers, you won't want to miss this!
