While San Francisco has ongoing coffee debates with umpteen local coffee roasters, tea is often left out. This weekend, it’s tea’s time to shine with the Second Annual San Francisco International Tea Festival, happening Sunday, March 10 at the Ferry Building.
Tickets are $20 and include all activities set up in a large exhibition hall, plus a gift bag and ceramic tasting cup. Exhibitors such as Chado Tea, Red Circle Tea, The Republic of Tea and Pure Puer Tea will be offering tastings for that cup. Additional small-group tastings will be available, plus lectures, for $5 each. And there will be plenty of loose leaf tea available for purchase from some of the most distinguished purveyors around the globe.
