The Tea and Coffee Festival in Yerevan brings together tea and coffee lovers at Swan Lake - one of the most beautiful public spaces in Yerevan.

Visitors stroll around the lake on a crisp autumn day, sampling both well-known and new brands of tea and coffee.

The wide selections of herbs, berries and fruit teas offer an opportunity to enjoy the flavorful produce of Armenia’s highlands long after the summer has gone. Visitors can sample and purchase tea and coffee while learning about their production.

Tea ceremonies from around the world are performed at the festival including Vietnamese, Chinese, Indian, and Korean.
