I’ve heard about this event for years but never ventured out for it. This year we got a deal through Amazon ($10!) but it was soooo crowded. The line went around the block when we got there in the morning. We had just missed the free goodie bags (awarded to the first 1000 participants)!
There was lots of tea brewing.
Now that’s legit.
You get to see lots of different tea brewing styles.
AND ice cream!
We sampled the chocolate-chai, green tea-coconut, another had red tea.
Then there are soaps that look like cupcakes.
Loose leaf tea everywhere!
Yes, even chocolate.
This place was interesting — 2 parts tea, 1 part booze.
Not pictured was the one I sampled — coco lada.
Different flavors of biscotti.
That feta cheese scallion scone was delectable.
…and back to specialty soaps!
There were many different vendors. We walked around and around and around…
Raw honey. I loved them. So tempted to buy…
After all the samples, I’m definitely highly caffeinated. I didn’t buy anything except for the scone; the only things I took home were a few tea packets. I was told that the tea at the festival was cheaper than at their stores. Overall, it was a good event but I’d probably go again only if we got a discounted deal.
Wonderful! I would have liked to attend this event but unfortunately New York City is a very, /very/ long way away from Australia.
I think I shall reblog this, your image gallery is great! Really sums up the event.
Wow! Thank you so much! I would love to visit Australia one day…

Remember the NYC Coffee and Tea Festival we posted about a few days ago? Well, this blogger actually attended, and has brought with them a treasure trove of photos for you to indulge in.
