I had the pleasure of volunteering at the sold-out NYC Coffee & Tea Festival at the 69th Regiment Armory this past weekend. There were over 75 coffee and tea exhibitors, as well as exhibitors who offered samples of a variety of cookies, cakes, chocolates, honey and ice cream. Some of my favorite brands were:
Illy (Always been a fan of this Italian espresso coffee… My favorite flavor is Latte Macchiato)
New York Gourmet Coffee (Delicious, strong flavor)
TEA•RRIFIC! ICE CREAM (Featuring flavors such as Masala Chai; Ginger Matcha; London Mist – Earl Grey with vanilla; Chunky London Mist – Earl Grey, Vanilla, Chocolate Flakes & Pecan Chunks)
Honest Tea (Got to take home Pomegranate Blue & Orange Mango flavors)
Fuze (Honey Gingseng & the Strawberry flavor just for me!)
SO Delicious (They were giving away coconut milk and French Vanilla coconut milk creamer)
Press Tea (Unique way of brewing tea… Opening a shop in the West Village on the corner of Seventh Avenue South and Perry Street.)
There were also some awesome programs, such as Honey for Tea (presented by Bee Raw Honey); Coffee & Chocolate (presented by Black Owl Coffee & Kilwins Chocolates)
Another perk of being a volunteer… The Goody Bag which was full of samples from Adagio Teas, Biscoff Gourmet Cookies, Celestial Seasonings, Choice Organic Teas, Kind Bars, Numi Organic Tea, Raw Revolution, Teeccino Herbal Coffee, Walker’s Shortbread and Wholesome Sweeteners!
