"There were so many wonderful vendors present from all over the region, with an especially great local presence. I sampled many delicious teas and purchased some teas from different vendors. People were very willing to educate us as we visited booths despite the enormous crowds."

"All the vendors and merchants we met were so eagerly gracious in sharing their stories and explaining where their tea comes from.."

"I saw some old favorites: Harney and Sons and Traveling Tea. I was impressed by Anne Marie’s Teas (sure wanted to win a tea bush) as well as Hugo Tea. I had no least favorites I was so impressed with everyone. I asked questions and not one person was too busy to respond, they could easily have been."
"No matter your level of interest in tea, there was something at the festival for you – and will be again, next year!"

"Someone really needs to invent a time machine so I can attend all of the presentations during the festival and stop missing out on so many great lectures."
