Life by the Cup

 Ingredients for a Purpose-Filled Life of Bottomless Happiness and Limitless Success


The founder of Zhena’s Gypsy Tea Company tells her extraordinary story of struggle, hope, and audacity, inspiring you to overcome setbacks—no matter how daunting—and pursue your dreams.

As a twenty-four-year-old single mom, Zhena Muzyka had a young son in need of life-saving surgery and only six dollars in her wallet. But she also had three other powerful motivators: hope, a love of tea, and a dream to share beautiful, aromatic, organic teas with the world. By combining her knowledge of aromatherapy and her gypsy grandmother’s teachings, Zhena started selling custom tea blends from a cart on California street corners—and with a lot of ingenuity and grit, her business took off. Now, thirteen years later, her son is healthy and Zhena’s Gypsy Tea is a thriving, purpose-driven, fair-trade, multimillion-dollar brand.

Life by the Cup is the inspiring story of Zhena’s journey to a meaningful life as founder of a company that benefits health, protects the environment, and supports humanitarian efforts. Zhena’s message is that no matter where you are, you can change your circumstances and live your dreams.

Each chapter illuminates an inspirational life lesson through stories and wisdom passed down through generations—and also shares one of her signature tea blends as well as mouthwatering tea-based dessert recipes. Zhena’s gentle insight will motivate you no matter where you are in life. Her message: Be audacious in your dreams, commit to your values, and see your passion transformed into possibility.
