January Sip & Listen: Story of a Teacup

If you have bought your ticket, please join us for our rescheduled “Sip & Listen” edition of Story of a Teacup on January 14, 2023! We will join together online, settle in, steep tea together, and listen to four members of the #CommuniTEA share a story about a special piece of their teaware. (This event was rescheduled from November 2022.) I’m thrilled to welcome Taniya from Yoga, Tea, and Poetry as our special guest for this event! Nazanin from Tea Thoughts and Jeff from UNYtea will be joining Taniya and me as featured storytellers.

The proceeds, ALL ticket sales, have been donated to a nonprofit organization in Chicago, Erie Neighborhood House. This organization supports low-income and immigrant families. Among the many things it does, Erie House has also been providing direct assistance in Chicago to hundreds of people who have been bused in from Texas under Governor Abbott’s inhumane policies against immigrants legally seeking asylum at the southern border.

This lovely teacup has an even more beautiful story.

Story of a Teacup Virtual Event

The teaware nestled our cupboards and on our shelves can evoke memories. They can transport us to other times, places, and people. Sharing those memories can help us better understand and connect to each other in the present, too.

Do you have a piece of teaware—a teacup, for example—with a story that you would like to share? It could be about how that teacup came into your hands. It could be the details of its former life, something that happened when you used it, and so on. If you have such a story, we’d love to hear it! Keep reading to find out more about how to sign up for the Story of a Teacup event on April 2, 2022. [NOTE: THIS EVENT HAS PASSED.]
