Nomad Tea Festival

Nomad Tea Festival

Two weeks ago I attended the Nomad Tea Festival, which is a virtual tea event.

I had missed other virtual tea events because of my work schedule, so I really wanted to experience this one.

Luckily for me, it was late at night on a weekend because of the time zone.

These type of events will surely become more common from now on.

The virtual tea experience

The first thing that impressed me was that it wasn’t just a series of webinars.

There was a virtual lobby, and even virtual booths.

Since I had some time before a talk began, I head over to the virtual booth of Wakoen.

There I was able to speak to Kyle Ketner with audio and video, it was a good experience.

Besides being able to attend each talk, there are chat rooms where you can join the conversation. In addition, you can decide to have a virtual meeting with another person.

I only had time to watch two of the talks, but the best thing is that if you go the Nomad Tea Festival’s Facebook page, you can watch all of the recordings.

Needless to say, I had a great time and I’m very thankful for the hard work of Soo Chung from Tea Creative. She organized all the event by herself!

Through virtual events like this, tea lovers from all over the world can get together with greater ease than ever before.

    Ooh new blog look.
    I was informed about the Nomad Tea Festival few days before it happened and thought it was an interesting concept. Unfortunately couldn’t spare the time for it. Good to read about other people’s experiences. 😄

      Hi Mei

      Yes, I had to change the theme because the last one stopped being updated. Still working on it.
      I’ve seen that you’ve reviewed sencha from different cultivars in your blog. How fun!
