To help everyone at Tea “go there,” we make a yearly contribution to each employee for international travel and exploration. Upon their return, our Tea travelers write a blog post to share their adventures with all of us (and the world)! We’re so excited to introduce you to Alison, our Senior Manager of Brand Creative and project managing extraordinaire. Follow along as she shares tales from her trip to Japan!
This past weekend, we invited 22 of our Tea Insiders to join us in San Francisco for a weekend of conversation, collaboration and lots of celebration. Our Tea Insiders is a group made up of Tea Collection’s nearest and dearest explorers. They share our brand values – spreading connection and curiosity through the lives of their family and friends, covet our new arrivals each season and aren’t ashamed to call themselves “Tea obsessed”. They flew in from all across the country (and Canada, too!) to spend time with us at our Studio Tea space. Over the course of 2 days, we shared some exciting news and we didn’t want you to miss out.
Over years of traveling across the world, we’ve been able to taste many different cuisines. Food is always important to the culture and history of a destination. Today, we’re sharing a recipe from France from our friend Carine Rosalia, a French-American mother and Tea customer. Here, Carine shares her recipe (and photos of her daughter making them in Tea) with us.
Curiosity is a way of life. One of the biggest wonders of travel is the constant sense of discovery—and we love exploring and discovering with kids. On our catalog shoot in the Walkabout Wildlife Park an hour north of Sydney, we helped our friends learn how to make DIY sunprints. This easy, and inspiring, diy project can be made with anything you can find outside. Learn how you can make a sunprint too, at home with just a few supplies.
This season, we celebrate and honor the indigenous people of Australia. When our designers traveled to Australia, they headed to Alice Springs, a remote town near Uluru (or Ayers Rock) a massive sandstone “red rock” monolith rising out of the earth. This area is called the Red Centre of the continent. Uluru is a part of the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage area and a sacred place to the Aborigines. Our designers traveled north of Alice Springs to Yuendumo, where they were able to meet the Warlukurlangu artists. The art association is a non-profit organization that is 100% Aboriginal-owned by its artists from the surrounding communities.
When you become an auntie (or uncle!), gifting becomes an important job. But where do you even start? We’ve gathered a few items that are sure to be a hit at the next baby shower on your list. Let’s start with the basics…
A post from Tea Collection CEO and co-founder, Leigh Rawdon.
This is Rudi. Age 11. Loves reading. Loves music, especially listening to his parents and their friends singing and playing piano or violin or bass. He generally gets along with his brother, and he appreciates the home his parents have made for their family.
Rudi is proud of his dad, a doctor, who served in the first World War as a medic, taking care of fellow Germans. He enjoys the family’s traditions such as the humor from the annual search for matzah at Passover. He has a lot in common with most kids we know.
