Los Angeles International Tea Festival Oct. 27th & 28th 2012, 11 AM - 5 PM

It’s time for the 2nd International Tea Festival at the Japanese American National Museum! It runs Oct. 27th to 28th from 11 AM - 5 PM this year. It was heavily attended last year and I expect even more attendance this year so you might want to go early in the day. I can't attend much of the festival this time so this has to be a no-host event.

Please see the festival website at for festival and parking details.

There is conflicting information going around about the pricing scheme, including what the tea sommelier program ticket covers. It is my understanding that the $5/day "Dianna Discount" (whisper it like you're getting into a speakeasy, hee, hee! -- just a joke!) for Meetup that I was able to get for you is supposed to cover at least the following:

General Admission

- Admission to the Festival Hall & Museum
- Tastings offered by Various Vendors
(Vendor Presentations)
- World Origins Tour Presentation (Sunday)
- Japanese Tea Ceremony
- Goodie Bag

Please note:
All the Presentations are of limited seating
and are on first come, first serve basis.

Have fun!

    Heads up! 50% off Tea Sommelier festival tickets are at Rush 49 until MIDNIGHT FRIDAY. My $5/day - at the door only - "Dianna Deal" on General Admission beats the Rush 49 Gen. Admission deal. The link is

    Drat! I would be tied up all weekend just when something like this is coming along.

    Can you get the Dianna Discount when you order online, and if so, how?

      It is not for online. It happens at the door. Sorry! Be sure to see the message I'm about to send out on the Rush 49 deal.

    The "Dianna Discount" of $5 at the door for General Admission cannot be used online. There is a Rush 49 deal for the tea festival. Be sure to read the terms of the deal closely. Despite the image on Rush 49, I cannot confirm that tea will be served at the tea sommelier talk, btw. See
