Has anyone been to the SF International Tea Festival before? [San Francisco, Ferry Building]

The $25 ticket isn’t much of a risk for a free swag bag, teacup and “hundreds” of tastes, but I’m curious if it is overcrowded. Has anyone been before?

Lovely! Hope someday they will organise something like this here.

Like you said, $25 isn’t much of a risk, although I must say that good tea needs a tranquil environment to savor, so the hustle and bustle of the festival probably most likely won’t provide. Brewing tea for 100 people at a time may also impact quality too. Though it seems like a good opportunity to try out some new and unfamiliar teas.

Friend of mine went there last year, seemed a little crowded (as with most of SF’s event) but not as bad as that Ramen festival in Japantown…
