TEA AID: A FUNDRAISE FOR NEPAL RELIEF EFFORTS
On May 23rd, Northwest Tea Festival sponsored a benefit for Nepal Earthquake relief efforts as part of the World of Tea series. Since Nepal is nestled in the Himalayas among many world-renowned tea growing regions, and is itself a producer of fine teas, it seemed particularly appropriate that the tea community step up to provide some aid in Nepal’s time of suffering.
There was a tasting of teas from that general region, principally Darjeeling and Nepal. There were also tea items for sale contributed by local tea companies. 100% of the proceeds went to the relief efforts.
