The Nature Tea program began when a group of tea lovers gathered in Prospect Park, Brooklyn in 2019 with the intention to share their appreciation of nature, tea, and connections with others. This program has continued to manifest the beauty and light of tea by building community solidarity among tea lovers, artists, musicians, and nature goers through seasonal gatherings in nature.
Summer Tea 2023 in Prospect Park is part of the Nature Tea series of Tea Arts & Culture. Nature Tea 2023 is sponsored, in part, by the Greater New York Arts Development Fund of the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, administered by Brooklyn Arts Council (BAC).
