Tea lovers of South Australia rejoice – the City of Unley Museum is bringing you a festival dedicated to the historic, versatile, and globally-loved beverage of tea.
Launching on November 25 Tea Inspired, is a free exhibition running until April next year.
Fittingly, the exhibition is launching with a tea party! Head along on Sunday 25 November for tea tastings with local expert Stu Hay from the Tea Catcher.
The exhibition is the first of its kind in Unley and will feature interactive classes, tastings, history, artefacts and tea-inspired artworks by Tristan Louth-Robins and Ray Harris.
Fancy brewing your own tea? Blending classes and workshops will be held throughout the festival. Or if you’re not up for the challenge, the team has also enlisted the help of Brewed by Belinda to create its very own signature blend ‘Inspired,’ which will be available for tasting each day.
The brew-tea-ful Unley Museum will display artefacts from Russian Samovas to Chinese tea sets.
Unley Museum Curator, Karen Paris says, “We are very excited to show the history behind one of the most popular drinks in the world. Tea continues to grow in popularity and drinking tea is not only a daily ritual for many, but an important part of our social and cultural fabric.”
The opening event is free but you must book online. Register your interest here.
