Life By The Cup By Zhena Muzyka

There is something so wonderful about the gift of the perfect book from a friend. My friend Lisa K sent me Life by the Cup a memoir and self-help motivation book by Zhena Muzyka, founder of the Zhena's Gypsy Tea Company.  This lovely gift arrived a week ago and it took me not time to inhale this book, something that I reserve usually for cozy mysteries. I loved the way this book is laid out and layered with personal history, struggles and strategies used to lift the reader and motive a new perspective on life. There is fascinating and practical advice, something for everyone in this book.
I very much appreciated the raw emotional journey as well as the powerful suggestions and themes of perspective taking, calming strategies and ways for personal growth.
"[Zhena] Muzyka's charisma leaps off the pages of this unconventional, touching, and personal guide to success" ("Publishers Weekly"), featuring seventeen soulful lessons and simple rituals for finding your life's purpose, improving your relationships, and becoming healthier--all in the time it takes to drink a cup of tea. Drawing on lessons she's learned throughout her amazing and sometimes difficult life journey, the social entrepreneur and founder of Zhena's Gypsy Tea shares seventeen soulful lessons to help you overcome obstacles, clarify your purpose, and bring awareness to each moment of your life. An inspiring roadmap for discovering the secrets of happiness and success for yourself at any stage in life, "Life By the Cup"'s message is that, no matter where you are, you can change your circumstances and live your dreams. As a twenty-four-year-old single mom, Zhena had an infant in need of life-saving surgery and only six dollars in her wallet. She also had two other powerful motivators: hope and a passion to share her unique tea blends with the world. Combining her kitchen hobby of blending tea, her knowledge of herbs and aromatherapy, and her gypsy grandmother's wisdom, Zhena started selling custom teas from a cart on California street corners. Now, over a decade later, her son is healthy and Zhena's Gypsy Tea is a multimillion-dollar brand. Zhena's insights and gentle guidance will inspire you to increase your compassion toward others as well as yourself. You'll also gain wisdom on how to hone your intuition, ask for help, and live out your true purpose without drastically changing the way you live. Discover your calling, bolster your courage, develop your own flavor of success, and you'll see your own passion make a meaningful difference in the world.

The tea line is delightful! My personal favorite tea from this line is the Raspberry Earl black tea. Last year I tried this line of tea's while I was at a camping retreat about 90 mins from here. The camp mess hall had the entire line and the teas were fantastic. Organic and Ethically sourced these teas were creative and delightful to the palate. My morning go to at camp was the Raspberry Earl. I found myself looking forward to it in the crisp morning air. I was pleased to see I could find the tea at Whole Foods near where I lived. In Canada you can also order it on line from in the USA you can find it at World Market and on line by clicking here.
