It’s amazing how many people are going to be a part of EcoSalon Shops!
Zhena’s Gypsy Tea is one, and I’m so glad they are, for several reasons.
One, I can’t wait to enjoy the fruity notes of Gypsy’s hot and cold tea samples that will be shared at the event.
Two, I love their story.
In 2000, founder Zhena Muzyka’s son, Sage, was born with a severe birth defect. Zhena had no health coverage to manage Sage’s mountain of medical bills, and she was struggling to make ends meet. But she was determined to earn the money it would take to pay for the surgeries that would save Sage’s life. Drawing on her degree in aromatherapy and a love of tea, and backed by a little seed money from friends and family, Zhena embraced her Ukranian Gypsy heritage and became a tea cart peddler on California street corners.
Zhena was undeterred, believing that her tins would purvey much more than tea – she saw hope for the future and her son. These days, Sage is a very healthy boy, and Zhena’s Gypsy Tea is an award winning brand.
Zhena’s Gypsy Tea offers not only teas but herbal infusions, producing hand-crafted, all natural and organic beverages that are 100% organic and 100% Fair Trade certified.
Come meet us this Friday, and stay for some tea, won’t you?
