Penn State’s Underground Tea House

Story/Video posted December 1, 2017 in News by Lexi Lehman


John Nguyen discovered Penn State's Tea Institute through a friend of his. Since then, his passion for the tea community has only continued to grow through working at the TeaParker Tea House, a student-run traditional Chinese and Korean tea house located in the basement of the Ritenour Building. The tea house is open to the public and offers an exclusive menu of handpicked, master-sourced teas, which are prepared by Nguyen and other approved brewers.
