NYC coffee and tea festival
Has anyone attended this? It looks interesting!
I have gone for the past two years, and there are a few others on Steepster who have as well. I am sad I don’t live in NY anymore and can’t make it this year!
It is a fun time, lots of tea samples to drink and buy. I always wish it was bigger, though! Looks like there are even more awesome exhibitors this year (Andrews and Dunham? That’s new!). Fang Gourmet Tea always has awesome teas and teawares.
Keep your eye out on the group deal sites (Groupon, KGB deals, LivingSocial) because they often do half-off admission deals through those sites.
I personally have not been there but my products will be there this year care of Jo Johnson also know as www.worldsspecialtea.com she is a childrens book writer and her subject matter focus is tea.
I am really excited as this will be my first large show. I am sending out tea-inspired perfume oils, soaps, bath teas, and lip balms.
Thanks and can’t wait to hear the stories of those who attended. :)
that’s cool rachel :)
Thanks Sil, I am currently diligently working on putting together new product for the show. It is fun, crazy and a little stressful. Still I wouldn’t trade it for the world. The highlight of my day is when I make someone happy with one of my creations. I mostly do it for fun and fuel for my tea habit. That and supply money of course. :)
I’m definitely going try and make it; maybe meet up for some swaps?
oh man… seriously! I wonder if i can convince my other half to plan this while i’m in China so we can take the weekend to go lol
It’s a really fun event and I recommend it to anyone in the area! We exhibited last year and met a lot of nice people – and gave out LOTS of tea samples. It seemed like a great event for the public to try products, get giveaways and buy tea (and tea accessories). Unfortunately we can’t make it this year due to a prior commitment.
I second Dinosara about watching for Groupons, etc. Also last year as an exhibitor we were given an ad to email out/post on our blog, etc offering half off admission. Companies you follow may share an ad this year.
