Organizers, Museum of Chinese in America (MOCA)
Since its founding in 1980, the Museum of Chinese in America (MOCA) has celebrated the living history of the Chinese experience in America through its collecting and archiving work, exhibitions, and education and adult public programming. Located in Manhattan’s Chinatown, MOCA aims to engage audiences in an ongoing and historical dialogue, in which people of all backgrounds are able to see American history through a critical perspective, to reflect on their own experiences, and to make meaningful connections between: the past and the present, the global and the local, themselves and others.
Tea Specialist, Shunan Teng
The Guided Tasting will be led by Shunan Teng, the woman in charge of all Tea Drunk’s sourcing and ethos. She’s is known for her relentless in-the-field pursuit of tea knowledge and her work in preserving Chinese tea traditions.
Tea Drunk is a Certified Minority and Women Owned Business Enterprise in New York City with the goal of sharing exceptional tea knowledge and making the rarest and most prestigious teas in the world accessible to all. Through education and access, we aim to cultivate awareness in preserving this disappearing art.
