What is Tea Time, exactly?


Tea Time is where five-ish strangers sit at a cafe with a Host to have a two hour conversation. It's not about anything in particular.

You're meant to know pretty much nothing about the people that come, aside from the fact that they all signed up for this — just like you. It's self-selecting in that sense.

However, it may bring you comfort to know a little something about your Host. If so, just keep reading

Meet your Host, Jeff.

(It'll be helpful to know what they look like when you're looking for a group of confused strangers at the cafe.)

- “What’s up?!” - “Oh, not too much.” *End of conversation* We walk by hundreds of human beings every day but know so little about each of them. Let’s grab some tea and get to know each other… just because we can!

What's your story?

Hi ya’ll. I love the word “y’all” even though I was born and raised in Ohio before transplanting to the East Coast for the last 5 years. In between, I lived abroad in 4 other continents and wrote a senior thesis about happiness. I am currently in med school and hope to become a global-mental-health-researcher-psychiatrist-advocate-something along those lines, but my real hobby is thinking way too much. I am always philosophizing about nothing and trying to make sense of the world. Occasionally, I’ll write some of these thoughts up on my blog. When I’m not traveling, med schooling, or philosophizing, I love to rock climb, make ice cream, people-watch, lift heavy things, ask too many questions and dabble in way too many new hobbies.

What might we talk about?

What has been the highlight our your last month? Last year? What wacky theories do you have about the world? What is your favorite place in the world? What is your spirit-animal? If you had a billion dollars and didn’t have to work, what would you do? What is love? What was the most influential year of your life? What’s important to you? If you had a time-machine, what is one piece of advice you would pass along to your 18-year-old self? What makes you happy? But most importantly, what’s been on your mind recently?
