Last summer we were invited to do demos at the first Tea Fest PDX in Portland OR and were delighted to be asked back this year. We were given a quiet and inviting space away from the main vendor area to set up our booth, serve iced puerh tea and do demos throughout the day. Our free 1/2 hour intro class was included on the event’s website and all 3 classes filled before the day of the event! The couple that won the drawing for a Beginners Package gift certificate for two has already responded that they are “super excited”. Three shifts of smiling branch volunteers staffed the event, assisted in the classes, talked with the public about the Taoist Tai Chi® arts and found time to browse the Tea Fest to sample rare teas including many puerhs. We see this becoming an annual event as it is a great opportunity to connect with all ages of healthy and health seeking Portlanders.
