Jojo Tea Debuts First Ever Tea-Tasting Room in Miami!
For tea lovers worldwide, Miami’s got exciting and tasty news! The lively city’s number one tea pioneer, JoJo Tea, has officially opened Miami's first-ever tea tasting room, featuring the most beautiful and finest hand-harvested teas from around the globe. With an enormous respect for tradition and culture yet ready to meet the standards of the young, modern world, co-founders Michael Ortiz and Tico Aran aim to develop a new American tea culture.
For several years now, tea has taken a rise and become “the new coffee” for many. With its undoubtable health benefits, sweet aroma, vibrant colors and soft soothing flavors, it’s no wonder we’ve all become obsessed with the modern day tea craze. Creating a sensory, educational experience positioned to develop Miami’s growing tea culture, JoJo Tea’s newest location is here to ease our minds and illuminate our senses.
The Tasting Room is an intimate eight-seat private tasting room born from JoJo Tea’s mission to spread and elevate the American tea culture. Through a traditional Omakase-style tea experience, the elegant room will introduce patrons to the ‘Way of Tea’ and the art of selecting, brewing and drinking from a carefully curated menu of wonderfully unique teas from around the world. Culturally rich yet in line with today’s health-centered and luxury-inspired society, this exclusive room and overall experience is exactly what the haute Miami crowd has been waiting for.
“The original vision of JoJo Tea was actually a teahouse—somewhere people could go to experience authentic teas in a gong-fu tasting environment. After studying teas at origin and building our brand over the past four years, we’re now positioned to pioneer meaningful evolution in the new American tea culture,” - Michael Ortiz, Co-Founder and Creative Director of JoJo Tea.
While JoJo Tea was originally founded in 2011, with the mission to bring the finest exotic tea to America, it has now become a reputable name within Miami’s booming food and beverage scene. With over 100 wholesale clients, including The Genuine Hospitality Group, Panther Coffee, Zuma, 50 Eggs INC, Eating House, Zak the Baker and Alter, JoJo Tea continues to grow and make steps towards enhancing the tea-drinking experience, not only in Miami, but throughout the world.
“It’s about building a community. As we’ve built our tea family across Miami and around the world—from India to China, Nepal and Taiwan—so many have warmly opened their doors to us. As we open The Tasting Room and the next chapter of our story along with it, we’re thrilled to have the opportunity to do the same,” - Tico Aran, Co-Founder and Director of Operations.
