Sipping Streams’ founder, Jenny Tse, was born in Hong Kong, and raised in Fairbanks, Alaska. She spent her summers selling her mother's vegetables at the local farmer's market and was very active in the local community. Her vision for Sipping Streams began the summer of 2004 where she began to notice how tea brought different people together. Traveling to different tea farms in China encouraged her to teach about tea in her local community. Jenny is a certified tea specialist with the Specialty Tea Institute.
Sipping Streams believe in the best quality of life for our mind, body, and soul. And encourage a community of diverse culture and age where people can come together and grow to know who they are.
