Cajomir Fest – Prague Tea Festival 2020

During the past months many events got cancelled or moved to an online mode because of Covid-19. This is why it made us especially happy to hear that Cajomir Fest 2020 – Prague Tea Festival, being an open air event, could take place despite the current times.

This tea festival is quite special. It started in 2009 with the purpose of being a meeting place between tea and art lovers. Thanks to its format, its easy going atmosphere as well as the incredible beauty and quality of Czech artisanal tea pottery, in recent years Cajomir Fest has been growing more and more famous among tea lovers in Europe. This year was the 12th edition and it took place in a park in Prague on the 15th and 16th of August.

Among the many events, stalls and performances at the festival, there was also some Japanese tea! In the photos we can see the Kasmir Teahouse and Czech e-shop Rishe Tea, that specialises in Japanese teas.
