About Us

 Tracey Wang Stuligross was born and raised in China.   Like most Chinese, she was primarily raised by her grandparents, and that is where she developed her appreciation for tea.  Her grandparents owned a tea house, and were well respected experts in all aspects of tea, from selecting the best leaves (always loose leaf tea), proper brewing techniques, and the connection between tea and the Zen approach to life.  It was there that Tracey developed her love of tea, and began her exploration of the connection between tea and the Zen approach to life.Tracey was an excellent student in China where she earned a Bachelor’s degree in English, and a Master’s in psychology.   She was successful, looked to explore more of the world.  She came to the United States, and felt very much at home.   She returned to school and earned a Master’s degree in Education from the University of Pittsburgh.While Tracey was very much at home here, there was still something missing.  In China, tea houses provided a place where people could drink high quality tea, and contemplate the mysteries of life with the guidance of Zen.  There were no similar resources available in America, were it was even difficult to get high quality tea leaves.  Her family’s heritage stirred in her heart to bring the her love of tea to America, where she could also help with the connection between Tea and Zen.That path began with expanding the knowledge of Chinese culture.  The Chinese civilization has been around for 5000 years, and many in America only know what they have seen in the movies, or heard on television.  Tracey has brought pieces of the ancient Asian cultures to America by opening Asian Wonders in the King of Prussia Mall (www.AsianWonders.net)The final step in the process is to add tea to the Chinese culture offerings available, and to that end she opened TranquiliTEA Temple in West Chester Pennsylvania.  This brings her life full circle back to her childhood where she learned the intricacies of tea and Zen at her Grandmother’s knee.
