Show Notes

Our guest today is Jenny Tse, Sipping Streams Tea Company founder, World Tea Expo first prize recipient, and Essence of Tea Podcast host.

Sipping Streams Tea Company founder, Jenny Tse, was born in Hong Kong, but raised in Fairbanks, Alaska. She spent her summers selling her mother's vegetables at the local farmer's market and was very active in the local community. Her vision for Sipping Streams began in the summer of 2004 when she began to notice how tea brought different people together.

Traveling to different tea farms in China encouraged her to teach about tea in her local community. Tse is a certified tea specialist. Her custom hand blends and specialty teas have won 1st, 2nd, and 3rd at the North American Tea Championships, 2nd place at the Global Tea Championships, and 1st place for the Top Tea Infusionist Competition at the World Tea Expo 2011.

She is also the author of The Essence of Tea – The Transformational Journey of a Tea Connoisseur, a fascinating blend of entrepreneurship, cultural identity and self-exploration. Jenny Tse takes the reader on a whirlwind tour from Idaho to Alaska to China and beyond in her search for the perfect tea, her family’s roots and, ultimately, where she fits into it all.
