On May 23rd, Northwest Tea Festival is sponsoring a benefit for Nepal Earthquake relief efforts as part of the World of Tea series. Since Nepal is nestled in the Himalayas among many world-renowned tea growing regions, and is itself a producer of fine teas, it seems particularly appropriate that the tea community step up to provide some aid in Nepal’s time of suffering.
There will be a tasting of teas from that general region, principally Darjeeling and Nepal. There will also be tea items for sale contributed by local tea companies. 100% of the proceeds will go to the relief efforts. Additional cash, credit card, or check donations will be accepted as well. Cost is $20 per person. Pay in advance, or at the event.
