Franchia

web:  http://www.franchia.com/
location:   12 Park Ave. (bet. 34th & 35th St.)
New York, NY

Franchia was conceived out of our desire to share the knowledge we gained from our personal journey to live a more balanced and healthy life. This journey brought us back to our native roots in Korea where we met a spiritual master who showed us the traditional Korean tea ceremony. Impressed by the beauty and elegance he displayed while preparing the tea, we became students of the ancient art of tea or tea tao, a tradition started centuries ago in China, Korea and Japan.

Our philosophy is rooted in the tea traditions of Asia, where tea has been celebrated for centuries, not only as an enjoyable beverage, but for its medicinal and spiritual attributes. We believe that tea time is a time of self reflection, a time for discovering peace of mind and simply a time for conversation with family and friends.

Our name Franchia means free, lavish and generous. We hope that through Franchia people will enjoy taking "tea time" out of their hectic, daily life and experience the tranquility that comes from gaining freedom from the stresses of modern living and inspire generosity that comes with sharing tea with others.
