Is there anything better than a simple cup of tea? If leaves rather than beans comprise your preferred kind of hot beverage, you'll know its pleasures: smelling the wafting aroma, feeling the heat radiating from your cup and tasting the hearty flavour. Most tea-lovers experience all of that several times a day; however, expect to do so a few times more on Saturday, November 26 — it's Brisbane Tea Festival time.

This first-ever fest boasts two main components: a workshop program that'll teach you about everything from the basics behind a perfect cuppa to tea-based mocktails, and a tea market. At the latter, you'll wander around The Old Museum in Bowen Hills with your porcelain tasting cup in hand — it's included with every ticket — and sip your way through nearly 30 stalls.

Experience the flavours of artisan teas from all around Australia; pick up some homemade tea pots, cups and other teawares; watch tea demonstrations; and grab a bite while learning about which foods pair best with tea — or eating tea-infused snacks. Whatever you spend the day doing, one thing is certain: you'll always have your favourite warm bev on hand.

There are two sessions to the festival, but only the 2–6pm session has tickets remaining, which'll set you back $20. The workshops cost extra, as does the bubble tea-drinking contest.

And yes, talking tea while drinking tea with people who love tea is firmly a big part of these tea festivities.
