Zhena Muzyka got into the tea business because she needed a job that would allow her to bring her infant son to work after he was diagnosed with a kidney disease. While selling tea lattes from an espresso cart, she started experimenting with her own blends, based on lessons learned from her gypsy grandmother. Today her 9-year-old son is doing well, and so is Gypsy Tea -- growing, taking on investors and selling through national grocery chains and resorts.
