New York Coffee and Tea Festival 2009

This past weekend was the New York Coffee and Tea Festival. It was smaller than I expected but still a very enjoyable experience. There were tables from all different vendors, giving out samples or selling their wares. I bought some interesting products, both good and bad, that I will be reviewing soon. I also picked up a super nice glass electric kettle from Tavalon.

The highlight was a Korean loose leaf tea ceremony by Teamaster Yoon Hee Kim. I've never seen a tea ceremony before. It was incredibly beautiful and audience was noticeably silent during the whole ceremony. I only wish I could be that graceful. It definately made me want to explore tea ceremonies further. Here are some really bad cell phone pictures that I snapped:

  1. Always nice to see a blog from a fellow tea lover. Thanks for the pics - it was hard to see the ceremony from three rows back. This definitely helps.
