Melbourne Tea Festival

Tea vs Coffee Melbourne’s Southbank Showdown!

We all know that Melbourne’s preferred hot caffeinated beverage is the much loved coffee, they never stop talking about it! And they have a right to be precious, its some of the best in Australia. It’s engrained into the European culture of the city with a choice of quirky cafes that would spoil the most conscientious connoisseur.

With more than 40 stalls sampling Teas of all kinds from across Australia and beyond there’s no better way to warm yourself up on an autumnal Sunday arvo.
