In the fall of 1987, Polly Simpkins met a man on the midnight train from Copenhagen to Amsterdam who shared with her his philosophy of life which focused on appreciating the people we love in this world. Cup of Karma was born to spread this message by bringing together Polly's love of people and her love of tea. Tea brings people together and Cup of Karma hosts events at which storytellers share the story of one person in their lives who has influenced them. There is good karma in every cup of tea and shared stories of appreciation and celebration of the special people in our lives who have touched us through love and learning.
