Zhi exists to create moments to Pause, Reflect, Connect. In a world where technology and social media could be barriers to connection, it is often the case that meaningful relationships can be formed that were otherwise less likely. We love that!

Take our fondness for Instagram for instance. Here, tea lovers from all over the world can share beautiful pictures of tea and be connected despite language barriers. A beautiful picture indeed says 1000 words. We love seeing your @zhitea time!

On Twitter, Zhi Tea is able to connect with tea lovers in every time zone. Here, we’re able to answer your questions, have tea chats, and share tea quotes. Reading your #zhitea tweets makes us smile daily.

Love Pinterest? We do too! Browse our curated boards of seasonal inspiration, global tea culture, and easy to make tea recipes. Zhi’s passion for beauty, connection, and tea is expressed here as well. Join us! We love to see what you pin too.

Thank you! Zhi honored in ‘Best of Austin’ Awards

Best of Austin 2014Our tearoom is in a flurry of delight! Kettles are whistling, tea cups clinking, tea leaves curling and unfurling.

This is a usual state of affairs at Zhi Tea, but today, it’s in response to a very special gift. Zhi Tea has been named a “Best of Austin” establishment by the Austin Chronicle. Yee haw!

Every year, the Austin Chronicle allows their readers to vote on their favorite local icons ranging from ‘Best Boot Scuffed Dancefloor’ to ‘Best Barbecue.’ They also invite their team of critics to pick their ultimate finds in categories like ‘Arts & Culture’ and ‘Recreation.’ Being chosen in any category is a true honor as it is an opportunity to feel the local love.

This year, Zhi Tea was included in the Food Section of the Critics’ Picks. Our category: “Best Way to Take Back the Tea Party.” We love the clever nod to current events as yes, we do want to take back tea from any possible stigma. Zhi Tea was founded on the effort to elevate tea culture in America.  Tea is amazing! Tea parties rule! Our passion for ultra premium organic tea is an opportunity to ‘be’ the tea culture. We pledge to keep Austin weird by staying enthused and appreciative of all our tea-freaks and tea-nerds, and sourcing the very best tea from around the world for them.

Many congratulations to the Austin Chronicle as well. This was their ultra special 25th Anniversary edition of their “Best of Austin” awards. And again, many thanks to everyone in Austin who makes this city such a great place to work, eat, live. And of course, drink tea.
