Zen Zoo Tea - Home, 5 Sept 2010 [cached]
A restaurant industry veteran, J. Alfred Ritter developed the concept for Zen Zoo Tea during an extended trip to Asia in 1995.
The sensational tastes, colors and scents of Bubble Tea as well as the relaxed ambience of these hip teahouses made an instant impression on Ritter. Dedicated to bringing Bubble Tea and the teahouse experience back to America, Ritter began a journey to develop the ideal teahouse for an upscale American audience.
Ritter sought out and studied with the world's leading Bubble Tea master, Master Chen Zhong Liang, to perfect his drink-making skills and hone his taste buds. Then he and Yu, discovering no high quality fruit syrups available in the United States, developed their own real fruit syrups for use in their ZenFusion recipes. Ritter drew upon his extensive background in restaurant operations and business management to create Zen Zoo Tea, Inc., which operates Zen Zoo Tea located in Brentwood, California. Ritter brings to Zen Zoo Tea, Inc., more than a decade of experience in both successful restaurant start-ups as well as in leading establishments such as Market City Caffe and the Camelback Inn. He holds a degree in international business with a minor in economics from California State University, Los Angeles, where he graduated in the top five percent of his class.
Together with co-founder J. Alfred Ritter, Yu was instrumental in developing the Zen Zoo Tea concept of a bar-like atmosphere, where customers educate each other about the drinks and food items in a true spirit of camaraderie.
