In a city obsessed with coffee tea lovers would be forgiven for thinking their passions weren't quite as celebrated as it should be.
But not anymore - The Melbourne Tea Festival takes place this month celebrating specialty loose leaf tea.
Wander through the tea market and discover some of the best artisanal teas around, grab a bite to eat from a food truck, indulge in a sweet treat or sit down and enjoy a cup of tea in the brew lounge. There are also workshops hosted by leading industry specialists where you can participate in hands-on sessions and tastings.
The festival will be held on Saturday 20 May 2017 at the Melbourne Exhibition Centre (MCEC), South Wharf.
