Dispatches from #TeaPenpals, Lu + Lara at the Healesville Animal Sanctuary

During their time together in Australia, our #teapenpals, Lu and Lara visited the Healesville Animal Sanctuary in Victoria, Australia. The sanctuary is a working health center for injured native Australian animals, a rehabilitation facility for those on the mend and a research center for conservation medicine. They offer many hands-on exhibits including observation bays where visitors can watch the vets at work as well as interactive exhibits for visitors to get an up close look at tons of native animals like parrots, dingos, pygmy-possoms, bilbies and more.

Lu and Lara spent a full day here, exploring, learning and playing vet. Here, we’re sharing a video from their time at the Future Vet station – a play space dedicated to inspiring kindness in kids through caring for animals in a mini wildlife hospital! They got to take x-rays of stuffed koalas and wombats, diagnose injuries and even bandage the little dingos up. How cool!?

Greece is many things to me: favorite recipes, shopping, time at the beach, my favorite vacation spot, and my home away from home. But this recent trip seemed to mean so much more because it was centered around family. I was visiting Greece, but I was really visiting my family roots.

We took #TEAONTHEROAD to Austin

#TEAONTHEROAD

We packed our bags and took #TEAONTHEROAD to Austin, Texas for the last four days of July. For what feels like years now, we’ve been throwing around the idea of a pop-up shop. We did some research and decided that Austin could be the perfect place to try out this concept. As long time fans of TOMS, we reached out and pitched the idea of setting up shop in their backyard on South Congress for a back-to-school event… you can only imagine how thrilled we hear they were on board!

So, for the first time ever, we took Tea on the road. We packed as much as we could into those four days, and man was it worth it. It was hot, we all were sweaty, but a wonderful time was had by all. From those rainy first days of set-up to the rush of customers that very first morning, #TEAONTHEROAD was full of surprises and we loved every minute of it.

Here, we share a special look at just what happened in Austin. We wish you all could have been there… And we can’t wait to hear where you think we should go next!
