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.

BIG Thanks to Our Special Guest & Storytellers

A BIG thanks to Taniya, our special guest at the event, and Nazanin and Jeff, for enthusiastically participating for free so all proceeds can support Erie Neighborhood House. I am deeply grateful for their participation in the January Sip & Listen edition of Story of a Teacup.

A hearty shout out to Sooz from Being Tea, too. They were originally our featured guest. Although they weren’t able to reschedule with us, I’m very grateful for the generous way they stepped in and helped me when I was heavy with grief at the passing of a friend and had to figure out how to reschedule.)
