If you want to ask me where to hangout at the end of this Summer in New York? I would suggest you to check this place out. A fun world to explore the tea culture! Room For Tea – the first tea-themed art pop-up in NYC.

New York City is built off diversity, so is the food here. Tea should be considered as more than just a bottle of Snapple, but as an ingredient that has the power to bring people together. It stands for different cultures. Every culture has its own adaption here and in NYC we celebrate that!

Do you know the history of tea and Boba?
Tea is about integration of diverse elements: tea and milk, tea and medicine, and tea and flowers are just a few examples of how the world’s cultures have transformed the shape and purpose of this drink. In a way, it is a symbol of unity.
When people initially handled the tea leaf, thousands of years ago, it was applied as a detoxifying remedy in Chinese culture. It entered the palace with the Tang Dynasty poets and has become the drink of nomads.
It hid in the baggage of the monks, traveled to Japan, it becomes a drink of royal classes. It traveled East alongside with the Dharma, with which it grew as a living faith.
It boarded huge cargo ships and voyaged with porcelain and silk to cast impressions of Asia throughout European society. It mixed with milk and brought back to Hong Kong and developed into a palatable daily drink that powers this modern metropolis.
When it meets the native snack – tapioca balls – in Taiwan. That when the magic drink Boba was born. It has become a sensation across the Asian continent and is central to everyday life for the youth.
It now takes root in the rest of the world; in all strata of society. It takes long journeys, perhaps just to remind those who haven’t had the chance to stop for the day to sip and breathe, that perfection can be felt while knowing only imperfect life; even if only at tea time!
