While living and traveling throughout Asia, Zen Zoo founders J. Alfred
Ritter and Linda Yu, discovered the teahouse. They found it was a place
where they could relax in the midst of chaos, enjoy the company of others,
and just belong. After returning to Los Angeles, Alfred and Linda searched
for an environment similar to that found in the teahouses of Asia, but
nothing could compare.

Zen Zoo Tea sprang from a desire to recreate that harmonious environment for
their friends here in America. With Zen Zoo Tea, Alfred and Linda captured
the spirit of the traditional Asian teahouse, offering a warm, welcoming
atmosphere to soothe the spirit and sensational teas to nourish and delight
the body.

In 1998, Zen Zoo Tea opened in Brentwood serving a variety of tasty Asian
dishes as well as the delicious Bubble Teas with Boba (Black Pearls) for
which they have now become famous. At the time such teas were only
available in Asian neighborhoods, making Zen Zoo Tea - a teahouse devoted to
a modern Taiwan-style drink and traditional Asian food in a non-Asian market - a truly unique endeavor.

Adding to Zen Zoo Tea's distinctiveness, Alfred and Linda developed their
own recipes and created a tea drink concept patterned on East Asian
Astrology. Today, they remain ahead of the curve by offering a range of
drinks with premium tea blends and by using ingredients made exclusively for
Zen Zoo Tea. They also offer a wide selection of tea-related merchandise
and other unique products.
