Best Way to Take Back the Tea Party: Zhi Tea

Best Way to Take Back the Tea Party: Zhi Tea
PHOTO BY John Anderson

Remember when the words "tea party" conjured something pleasant – or at least less terrifying than a bunch of Rand-os with open carry permits? Homegrown Zhi Tea is here to steer us back to civility. Its (organic, Fair Trade) teas are made in Austin, and the sophisticated blends are sold and served all over town, from Wheatsville to the W; they also do a brisk online business. Best of all is Zhi Tea Gallery, its peaceful cafe and outdoor space for working, hanging out, replenishing your soul – and perhaps having a tea party you can believe in.
