San Fransisco International Tea Festival on Sunday
It’s this Sunday! Just discovered it tonight, hahaha.
General Admission for individuals is $20 (+ticket agency fee). I’m not yet sure about the group rate but I’m guessing it’s cheaper the more people there are in the group :D
There are also small group sessions, some with tasting for an extra $5 each :)
Let me know so we can exchange numbers and meet up!
I might be able to go, but I wouldn’t know until the day of so don’t count me for ticket stuff. I would love to meet up with the group tho if folks are going.
I’m not yet 100% either. It would help a lot if there’s at least one Steepsterite who is definitely going too. Overprotective parents (sighs in exasperation) watch too much SVU. If it is not too much of a hassle to drive/park in SFO, they /might/ go with me haha. All good if they do. More people to share the tea addiction with hahaha.
Make your brother go with you. :) He’s into tea, right? Driving and parking in SF is indeed a hassle, but there are tons of public transit options. Caltrain goes all the way down to Gilroy now and the stop in the city isn’t far from the Ferry Building. I understand the frustration of protective parents and of wanting to protect your children but you are going to study abroad soon, right? Maybe this would be a good exercise for you both in preparation of that?
That sounds fun, but I don’t have the transport.
Haha, we’ll see. You never know who might be up to going there with you from where you are :) You have gone to SF before, right? Try praying for it.
I’m a couple hours south. I’ve gone to SF many times. And I prefer plans.
so plan it out :) if there’s a will, a way may or may not be found ^^’
Nobody I know is going, so that doesn’t work.
wow. could afford the entry fee, just not the cost of transport to get there. another year then.
im more or less going for sure now…dear Lord, make it possible!
FYI for anyone going, the Embarcadero will be closed to vehicles for Sunday Streets. http://www.sfmta.com/cms/apress/SFMTAWeekendTransitAndTrafficAdvisory.htm
oooh, thanks for the heads up Dustin! we will probly be parking at Union Square tho…unless you can recommend a better spot! :D
Really wish I has a ride to this. Somebody get me a care package?
I wasn’t able to make it. Trying to pack too much into my visit and had to cut out the festival. I am wondering how it was though. Any reports from attendees?
It was nice..sampled lots of teas and listened to a lecture. I went in by myself but was not lonely at all – tea lovers are so friendly and I easily made friends with a few :) It would have been much nicer to meet a Steepsterite but maybe I made a convert or 2! Haha. Love the Steepster family :D
Found out that there was also a food expo in LA and I think another tea-related event in NY. Maybe that is why there wasn’t an overflow of guests this second year. Last year, I read that it was so full that some couldn’t get in ^^’
Oh cool, glad you enjoyed it! Maybe I’ll be able to make it another year.
