Sydney Tea Festival celebrates the comforting cuppa!
Known fact, a cup of tea can cure anything, from a stressful day in the office to 3:30-itis, a nervous breakdown – we could go on. With so many people loving the humble cuppa, it’s no wonder Sydneysiders are excited to celebrate all things tea, with the inaugural return of the Sydney Tea Festival in 2018.
Hosted in Carriageworks on Sunday 19th August, the Sydney Tea Festival is a one-day interactive event designed to help people discover and experience the delights of speciality tea.
The tea market is set to feature more than 70 stallholders’ personalised brands of teas and tisanes, including premium, single origin, organic and rare tea blends. As well as opportunities to learn more about tea, you’ll also get the chance to take part in a series of workshops, talks and masterclasses throughout the day.
New to the festival this year is The Tasting Table, giving tea lovers the chance to participate in small group masterclasses with tea purveyors, along with a degustation dinner with tea pairings held at Automata in Chippendale. You can also drink tea wine as a special first to the event! Created by Rabbit Hole Organic Tea Bar and a South Australian winery, you’ll be able to taste four different blends and have your say on which one makes the final product range.
A cup of tea is only as good as its cup. Thankfully, tasting tea will be a breeze with the festival’s signature porcelain cup appearing again. Valued at $5.00 and included in every adult ticket, this cup will allow visitors to taste their way through the day.
With all that tea-sipping set to work up a hunger, there will also be reams of food purveyors with tempting sweet ands savoury delights to compliment your brew. Think everything from pastries to doughnuts, macarons and mashmallows plus tea-flavoured soft serve ice cream.
