The greatest Chinese Cultural Festival & Tea Expo returns 2019！The finest tea makers from China are coming to Sydney as part of the Chinese Cultural Festival and Tea Expo from the 21rd to 24th of November 2019.
Whether you’re in business and want to expand your horizons and opportunities, or just want to spend a relaxing day immersed in Chinese culture or simply sit back and relax with a great cup of tea, this is the expo for you!
The harvesting of tea, its brewing and consumption, is a Chinese tradition that dates back more than 5,000 years and for nearly five hundred China has been a major exporter of tea into global markets. Today China is far and away the biggest producer and exporter of green tea, combined with other tea varieties Chinese total tea production accounts for more than 20% of the global tea trade. Though India is often thought of as one of the world’s great tea producers and exporters, China exports almost three times the volume of tea as its south Asian neighbour.
Sydneysiders can immerse themselves in this rich tradition at the ICC Darling Harbour with more than twenty tea producers from seven provinces showcase their finest blends. They will be accompanied by ten Chinese Tea Masters who will perform ancient tea ceremonies throughout the weekend.
As well as displays and tea tasting, the Expo features ceramics, traditional tea pots, cups and brewing implements all on sale for local tea lovers. Many Australians enjoy the ceremony as much as the taste.
For those in hospitality, tourism, hotels, food wholesaling and speciality retailing, the Expo is a great opportunity to brush up on the latest trends and establish connections with the world’s biggest fine tea market.
