The Melbourne Tea Festival is back for a one-day celebration of speciality loose leaf tea, held in the heart of the city. Both dedicated tea lovers and the tea curious will discover something new!
Spend the day wandering around a tea market that features dozens of specialty and artisan tea stalls, from the local to the global. Discover teas and tisanes of all kinds from all over the world as you explore stalls with your porcelain tea tasting cup in hand. Talk to tea purveyors direct and learn more about tea varieties and brewing. Pick up some hand-made tea ware and indulge in delicious sweet or savoury treat. There's also a Brew Lounge where you can sit and enjoy a cup of tea and tea ceremony performances throughout the day.
