Belcarra Seasonglass Green Tea Festival features six days of green tea goodness, complete with talks, workshops and product sampling, taking place on the picturesque grounds of Camp Howdy in beautiful Belcarra, B.C. The festival takes place July 12 – 14 and 19 – 21, 2019.
Now in its fourth year, Belcarra Tea Festival will introduce tea drinkers to a diverse line of organic green teas in the form of green tea based drinks, foods and products. Set against the pristine natural backdrop of Belcarra, the festival ultimately aims to highlight the myriad of health benefits that can be garnered from drinking green tea or using green tea products.
While many people have heard of the health benefits of the ancient teas, the steps in brewing loose-leaf green tea may still feel complicated to those who are unfamiliar with the process. Belcarra Seasonglass Green Tea Festival will simplify the process so you can easily incorporate the benefits of green tea into your daily rituals or routine. But that’s not all…
This year’s festival highlights include:
Tea Tasting: Compare the subtle differences in aroma and taste between different harvests of Green Tea and blended teas.
Tea Brewing: Learn how to brew a tasty pot of tea. Brew on your own or share with a partner!
Eatea: Explore the concept of eating tea! Learn why eating the whole green tea leaf has many health benefits.
Tea Talk: A brief introduction to where our Green Tea comes from.
From classic favourites to new food items like the green tea rice bowl, the core of the festival this year is to incorporate green tea into everything we eat and drink, without compromising the great taste of the centuries-old tea. The festival’s organic marketplace will include green tea, sourdough bread and exclusive single-origin products from around the world, including green tea from South Korea, olive oil from Spain, balsamic vinegar from Italy and maple syrup from Quebec..
The festival also boasts plenty of non-tea related foods, such as organic hamburgers, hot dogs, pizza and BBQ korean ribs as well as family-friendly entertainment throughout the day.
The event is hosted by 8 Corners Organic Tea Room, an absolutely adorable teahouse located about 45 minutes from Downtown Vancouver that specializes in high quality organic teas. 8 Corners will also host an elegant Afternoon Tea, complete with white tablecloths, silver tableware, and a three-tiered stand filled with delectable treats.
