‘Room for Tea’ opens in NYC on August 28
Room for Tea, created by Chaimi Food Studio, and designed by an all-female team, is a tea-themed immersive art pop-up. It will feature 5 main senses and 18 visual highlights inspired by tea culture around the world. The senses include: “Labyrinth of Tea Origin”, “Milk Tea Metropolis”, “Matcha under Cherry Blossom”, “Summer BOBA Court” and “Mint Tea Secret Box”, which represent different tea cultures. Weekly guests from 6 New York hit teashops will treat every visitor to one of their complimentary signature BOBA teas. For those who are interested (and pay more), Room for Tea also offers a 40-minute tea ceremony experience. Every ticket sold will help the organization Trees for the Future (trees.org) to plant one tree.
“New York City is built off diversity. Tea should be thought of as more than just a Snapple, but as an ingredient that has the power to bring people together,” says Yaxing Bai, Creative Director of Room for Tea. “It’s more than a drink. It stands for different culture. Every culture has its own adaption here and in NYC we celebrate that. That’s why we created this pop-up.”
Room for Tea will be open through September 22. Hours are 11:00 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. The pop-up is located at 371 Broadway in Manhattan. General Admission is $23, and the Tea-enthusiastic ticket (including 40-minute tea ceremony experience) is $33. Tickets are available now. Visit www.roomforteanyc.com for more information.
