Melbourne Tea Festival 2016

The Melbourne Tea Festival was held at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre on Sunday the 29th of May 2016.

The festival featured more than 50 specialty loose leaf tea brands offering tastings and tea sales. From Japanese matcha and locally grown Australian teas to traditional Indian chai and organic blends the market was afternoon out for the tea lover. In an adjoining room tea workshops from Australia’s leading tea specialists where held.

We had a cup of tea and a talk with a few of the stallholders.
