Tea anyone? Any tea? Do you have your favourite brand, blend of tea? Can I tempt you to try something new, something different? Well, even if I can't, there are some people who can. There are many people, as the matter of fact.
Tea growers, blenders, sellers, connoisseurs will gather their wares and themselves at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre in Southbank this Saturday 20 May to partake in Melbourne Tea Festival. Yes, you have heard it right, there is such a thing.

Melbourne Tea Festival cordially invites you to come along, to buy a ticket (porcelain tasting cup is included in the price) and stroll among the Tea Market stalls, attend a workshop or two, purchase some of your favourite teas and discover something new and exciting. And may be, just may be you will be tempted to create your own tea blend (there is a workshop for this too).
Now, this is where it is getting a bit mad-hatter complicated. There are tickets to enter the festival. They are $15.90 online. They will be $20.50 plus credit card charge at the door. Tickets to workshops need to be purchased separately. Plus, kids under 13 are free to attend.
