What is Tea Time, exactly?

๐Ÿต

Tea Time is where five-ish strangers sit at a cafe with a Host to have a two hour conversation. It's not about anything in particular.

You're meant to know pretty much nothing about the people that come, aside from the fact that they all signed up for thisย โ€” just like you. It's self-selecting in that sense.

However, it may bring you comfort to know a little something about your Host. If so, just keep reading

Meet your Host, Angie.

(It'll be helpful to know what they look like when you're looking for a group of confused strangers at the cafe.)

there are currently 8.5 million people living in NYC - how wild is that? every day i'm on the MTA, on line (yes, ON line - am i a new yorker yet?) at Dunkin Donuts, getting groceries in Chinatown, i bump into different people and every time, i just wish the split second interaction we have can last just a little longer - to hear what's on their mind? how is their heart doing? NYC can be a lonely city*, but let's take advantage of the fact that we're ALWAYS around people and actually have conversations and start communities. join me in tea time, and let's chat a little longer than a hi, hey, hello, good morning! :) *see what we might talk about below

What's your story?

Born in Seoul, South Korea, I moved to Los Angeles, CA when I was 12 years old by myself out of teenage angst. I became a NYC transplant around 5 years ago and have been a bicoastal kid. I have a deep penchant for food - exploring it, eating it, talking about it, listening to podcasts about it - the whole gammit. I use food as a way to build community and deepen relationships - just like we do in my family. I'm passionate about making conversations around equity & social justice accessible to all generations - esp youth & elders. You can also spot me singing (& vocal percussion-ing) with an all-female semi-pro a cappella group (@mezzonyc) at bars, private events, subway, weddings! I really love the New York Public Library system & the world of podcasts - It makes me think about how big this universe is and how small I am. I love listening/watching spoken word poetry, too. Currently, I am training for the NYC Marathon (woah. I got a little shaken up typing that just now) coming up this November!! A little disclaimer: I'm told I have a very loud, gutsy laugh!ย When you join me in tea time, you can probably spot me right away, because I'm usually the only person wearing bright colors in NYC and I have a bright yellow Razor scooter. See you soon!

What might we talk about?

we will talk about...food and politics around food. best spotify playlists. being lonely vs. embracing being alone. why do we always talk about the weather when we first meet someone?, engaging our parents on conversation about social justice. NYC "bests". When and how did you discover some of the things you know now? If you can teach someone something on the spot, what would you teach? Who do you want to grow up to be? Podcasts & books recommendations. Traveling. Life revelations with age. Relationships. What's your story?ย 

everyone should wear a little bit of color in their outfit (& in their hearts)
