Albany Tea Festival

Overit 1.jpgThe first Albany Tea Festival is set for this Friday evening at the Overit building in Albany. Organizers are touting the event as "the Capital Region's leading experts on tea in one room."

Speakers topics include kitchen herbals, ginseng, fermentation, making cold brew and iced teas, and tea trivia.

The lineup of local vendors includes Short and Stout Tea Co (Guilderland), Divintea (Schenectady), The Whistling Kettle (Ballston Spa and Troy), and The Brakes (Albany).

The Albany Tea Festival is Friday, June 5 from 5:30-9 pm at Overit (435 New Scotland in Albany). Admission is free.

Comments

Just looked more at that building since I assumed it was previously a Church. Overit did an amazing job redesigning that space, would love to see more of it.

Hey John - we would love for you to stop by! Feel free to visit tomorrow night for the Albany Tea Festival, or next week for Startup Grind Albany (http://startupgrind.com/albany/)
