Chiya and Chai

Everyone has a tea story. What does tea mean to you?

Sandra Benn's passion for tea was brewed at an early age when she would enjoy many over-stewed cups from the pot on her grandparent’s stove. Her love for a brew only grew as she began to travel the world. Some of her happiest memories are of drinking local teas across the globe, from Peru’s coca tea to Argentina’s yerba mate, to chai in Nepal and India. All prepared by locals, using their own unique recipes. Looking back at these photos puts a smile on her face as she remembers treasured stories and experiences.
