Coffee and Tea Festival 2


As promised, last weekend Dawn, Graham, Susan, Erica and I went to the Coffee and Tea Festival in Oaks, PA.  It was actually more of an expo or trade show than a festival but we all had fun sampling new and different teas and treats. I must say that I wasn’t surprised when there was a long line for cheese around lunchtime.

There was an interesting collection of coffee, tea, chocolate, wine, beer and baked goods. What a synergistic pairing! I can’t say I was enamored of the coffee porter but I really liked Vino Teano from Capital Teas. It’s an herbal used to infuse wine. Quite tasty!

We got hungry so Dawn and I shared a box of cider donuts and something called Nut Punch which consists of ground nuts pressed into a convenient, pocket-sized barrel shape. We think we’re addicted.

And guess what?! I finally met Kevin Gascoyne, one of our advisory board members, all the way from Canada.

Inventive, crafty and just plain silly paraphernalia lined the booths and I had my first taste of matcha, which was blended on the spot!

I never realized just how much tea and tea paraphernalia I had acquired until I started working at The Daily Tea. Now I celebrate a passion I didn't realize I had. Loose, unsmoked yerba mate, brewed in a French press, starts my day. And I've been brewing my own kombucha since 1994! What tea treasures will I discover next?
