NEW YORK CELEBRATES COFFEE & TEA
February 14, 2008 – People on holiday in New York in April may get the chance to join in with the city's annual tribute to coffee and tea.
In one of the most unusual events in its cultural calendar, the Big Apple will host a festival entirely dedicated to these two hot beverages between 12 and 13 April.
This year's tribute will be the third annual Coffee and Tea Festival NYC.
Among the highlights of the 2008 festival will be an exploration of the art of tea blending, hosted by Nini Ordoubadi, a specialist in the creation of unique and complex varieties of tea.
One of the developing trends among tea and coffee lovers is reportedly drinking cocktails infused with the beverages.
Author and journalist Kara Newman will lead a discussion on this topic, which will include a demonstration of how tea and coffee can be incorporated into cocktails.
Visitors can find the Coffee and Tea Festival NYC at the Metropolitan Pavilion on New York's West 18th Street.
