Too crowded and the venue for this event was too small. It was hard communicating with the vendors about their product because the room echos from other people.

The tea festival was a blast. A ton of vendors, especially a select few with stellar tea. I really enjoyed the selection of vendors and the variety in what they presented (tea ware, loose leaf, kombucha, food made with tea, tea-themed gifts, appliances, etc.). On the "room for improvements" side, this place was crazy hard to find; there was hardly any room to walk; vendors frequently ran out of electricity, so you spent a lot of time waiting for that side of the room to get power and brew tea.

Amazing experience and selection of teas. However, venue was way too small for the amount of tickets sold. It was hard to navigate through and be able to sample teas.

A commercial vendor fair for new tea drinkers. Not impressed.

The event was overcrowded. It was difficult to navigate through with everyone shoulder to shoulder. I suggest having ticket time tiers next year. It was nice seeing so many vendors and trying their products but unless they move to a bigger venue to accommodate everyone I may skip it next year.

The concept was fun and interesting. But it was way to crowded. We were some of the first people there and within the first 20 mins it was hard to even walk around much less try tea.

We did not go in because the space was very hot and crowded and the line to enter had 50 people in it. The wait to enter the crowded, hot space seemed too long for us.

This was the first year I attended the SF Tea Festival and I was thrilled with the experience. Definitely a must for tea lovers to try lots of new brands of teas to put on their "need to buy" list!

I was so excited to attend this, but couldn't even get in the door. it as over booked and the line to get in wrapped around the building. They had to stop allowing people in due to crowding. I bought 3 tickets and all went unused.

From Our Editors

In fertile fields both near and far, Camellia sinensis plants grow verdant, painting the landscape with a pure, bright green. After their leaves are picked and wilted, crushed and cooked, then dried and packed, they become a thing many of us know and love: tea.

At the San Francisco International Tea Festival, coffee devotees who lead a double life and other tea lovers come together to celebrate this globally enjoyed beverage. Everyone who attends receives a teacup, which they can use for different tastings around the festival, discovering hundreds of types of tea from local and global purveyors. People can partake in classes and workshops throughout the day as well to complement the experience with a bit of education.
