San Francisco International Tea Festival: February 25, 2012

San Francisco International Tea Festival tasting cup.

The San Jose area is becoming more and more a part of the tea world! Not only do we have the Winter Fancy Food Show, which includes tea vendors and products, and the Berkeley Coffee & Tea Festival, but on February 25th the first annual San Francisco International Tea Festival will be open to the public as well as those in the tea trade. $20 gets you admission to the event, which will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Ferry Building. The Ferry Building is most famous for housing an indoor public market, and it’s less than an hour from San Jose by car, and also accessible by BART.

The convention hall will be full of tea exhibitions, vendors, and authors, and will feature tea celebrities James Norwood Pratt, Roy Fong, Devan Shah, Masahiro Takada, and Mike Spillane. Lectures, classes, tea tastings, demonstrations, and more will make the hours fly for those who attend this convention. For more information, visit the website, or send a S.A.S.E. to:

San Francisco International Tea Festival
P.O. Box 2137
Nevada City, CA 95959

The festival organizers recommend that everyone purchase their tickets in advance, because they may not have them available at the door. They have also been holding ticket sweepstakes for the past few weeks, so visit their Facebook page for information about the one going on now. Keep your eyes on the San Jose Tea Examiner column for a full write-up of the San Francisco International Tea Festival!
