The Tea Lovers Festival May 1-3
May 1 – 3, 2015
The Tea Lovers Festival Kicks Off Its 10th Anniversary with a Weekend Full of Events that Celebrate the Love of Tea in Los Angeles!
Ten years ago in a small yoga studio in Santa Monica, the Tea Lovers Festival held its very first public event featuring the culture of India. The delicious foods, henna tattoos, fortune telling, and Indian dancing were enjoyed by a small local crowd of around eighty attendees. Teas were represented by only a single tea company – Zhena’s Gypsy Tea, which has since grown into a global brand. Its founder, Zhena Muzyka, who has participated in the Tea Lovers Festival every year since that very first event, is now an acclaimed inspirational author. It’s only fitting that she’ll be kicking off the festival’s 10th anniversary celebrations by hosting a Gypsy Tea Party at the Armory Center for the Arts in Pasadena on Friday, May 1, 2015, at 7 pm. Zhena will present stories from her book Life by the Cup, while presiding over tea ceremonies and serving her delicious specialty teas.
