The Nature Tea program began when a group of tea lovers gathered in Prospect Park, Brooklyn in 2019 with the intention to share their appreciation of nature, tea, and connections with others. This program has continued to manifest the beauty and light of tea by building community solidarity among tea lovers, artists, musicians, and nature goers through seasonal gatherings in nature.
