About the Northwest Tea Festival
The Northwest Tea Festival (first held in the fall of 2008) is a unique gathering of tea lovers, fanatics, providers and consumers. It is planned and staffed by volunteers, all tea lovers coming from a diverse background. Over two days, tea is discussed, dissected, tasted, debated, amplified and reduced to its basic element. Festival attendees are presented a number of opportunities to sample dozens of teas provided by vendors and at focused tea tastings. They will be able to participate in workshops and presentations on tea and expand their knowledge, experience and enjoyment of this wonderful beverage.
Based in Seattle, Washington, this event has vendors and presenters coming from all over the United States (Washington, Oregon, Connecticut, California, New York, Alabama, Georgia and Nevada) as well as internationally from tea producing countries such as Japan, Taiwan, India, and China.
