The Melbourne Tea Festival, at Meat Market in North Melbourne, is an interactive experience designed to help people discover and experience specialty tea; encourage and grow passion for tea through education; and showcase quality specialty tea providers. The festival day has two elements: a tea market and an educational program of workshops, talks and tastings. 



The tea market features dozens of stallholders – tea brands with specialty loose leaf tea and tisanes of all styles, and a range of teawares and food purveyors with tempting sweet and savoury treats.
