The international lineup of exhibitors is sure to delight all that attend. The event will showcase local and national coffee and tea companies who will provide samples to attendees and will include two days of programming on various topics related to coffee and tea. Sweet treats will also be available to sample and to purchase.

In addition to being at tremendous exhibitor and sponsorship opportunity, and a delightful way for visitors to spend the day, the 3rd Annual Coffee & Tea Festival: NYC will help raise funds and awareness for Cup for Education, the official charity of the event.

TAFU has combined generations of tea cultivation experience and brewing expertise to produce green tea delicacies of unparalleled quality. We believe that there is an art to creating the perfect brew of traditional Japanese tea and we have transformed the art form into a science over the course of 150 years of our history. www.tafuny.com

Show Exclusive Offer:
TAFU’s tea master will freshly roast hojicha to order for you right at the TAFU booth!

Embrace the advent of Spring with TAFU’s Sakura Tea Truffles
Cherry blossoms, or Sakura, have deep significance in Japanese culture and are a traditional motif in art, literature and cuisine. The ephemeral blossoms only last for about 2 weeks before fluttering to the ground, recalling the vibrancy and impermanence of life.

Celebrating the Sakura season, TAFU New York is introducing limited edition sweets. Sakura Tea Truffles will be available at the Coffee & Tea Festival while supplies last.
