Melbourne 2018

Reinforcing our Commitment

It began, as every gathering should, with tea. After The Savoy Hotel’s art deco foyer embraced this year’s cohort for a group photo, AUSTCS delegates sat down and enjoyed the unboxing of the 2018 cup by ceramicist Annemieke Mulders. It provided an important focal point for our opening ceremony, ‘Welcome by Tea’, with tea at each table selected and served by volunteer brewers.

AUSTCS 2018 at The Savoy Hotel, Melbourne

The Australian Tea Cultural Seminar 2018 was hosted at The Savoy Hotel, Melbourne. A part of the Vibe hotel group, this 1920’s heritage hotel has recently undergone a full refurbishment. Built in 1926, much of it’s art deco charm has been restored to its former glory as part of the extensive refurbishment.

On the corner of Spencer and Little Collins streets The Savoy Hotel is an easy venue for both locals and those travelling inter-state. Its close-proximity to Southern Cross Station makes it ideal for those travelling to the seminar from various parts of Australia.
