The woman behind Luna Tea.
Hello! I'm Jenni.
There I am, sitting in my tea shop drinking what is probably my 319th cup of tea. It's an addiction! But I'm not convinced it's the caffeine; it's the ritual of mindfully brewing a pot of my favorite tea blend (for the record, it's Lady Wednesday).
My message is authenticity and self empowerment. And I've found these life changing practices through my journey of creating my own business and sharing the Luna Tea lifestyle. I love inspiring people to empower themselves to live their best life; deliberately, authentically, and consciously with purpose and gratitude.
My story goes like this:
I grew up in the Bay Area with a family who regularly practiced holistic medicine. My mother is an Herbalist and Accupressurist, and that is how I became interested in plants- especially the tea plant. We would often (and still do) get together to take a break from whatever we were consumed with in our day, to enjoy tea & conversation. Eventually, I went on to study painting at San Jose State University and finished with a BFA in Pictorial Art. During my school years, I was often referred to as "the tea lady" amongst my peers because I was constantly drinking and sharing tea- even at parties.
After years of working in coffee shops, teaching painting, and bartending, I knew I would rather do something in my life that brought me creative freedom and true purpose: conscious entrepreneurship. It has been my mission to spread my love for tea; creating a lifestyle around it and in turn inspiring people to practice mindfulness and self care through "the tea experience".
Whether you are a long time connoisseur, or completely new to tea, the experience is one that we can share.
Get inspired. Be authentic. Feel empowered.
