Melissa Khonsavang loves brewing tea and sharing it with the rest of the world.

When the Caroline Springs woman joined a mother’s group following the birth of her daughter more than three years ago, she would blend different herbs and bring them along to meetings.

“And then the mothers started asking me to make teas so they can give it as gifts,” Ms Khonsavang says.

She’ll showcase her creative blends at the Melbourne Tea Festival this weekend, from 9am-4pm on Saturday, May 20 at the Melbourne Exhibition Centre, 2 Clarendon Street, South Melbourne.

Pre-sale tickets cost $15.90. For more information, visit
