Marjorie Wang fell in love with Chinese tea as she studied virtual reality development at New York University Shanghai. What began as trips to Shanghai’s tea market, turned into a passion for tea and brought her to New York City’s “Tea Drunk”, where she apprenticed for six months, learning extensively about tea processing, brewing, tasting, and serving. Today she is working with the family financial planning business, developing virtual reality experiences, and still drinking tea.
