Come For A Ride: Our Boat Trip Along the Amalfi Coast

S16_TripPic_JC_#1_2099

Some say that the Amalfi Coast is the most beautiful coastline in the whole world. We wouldn’t argue with that. While driving down its winding roads may appeal to some, we prefer the views from the Tyrrhenian Sea. To capture the Amalfi coast in all of it’s splendor, we hopped on a boat one afternoon to see it from a different perspective. Follow along as we take you on a boat tour of the Amalfi Coast. 

Nepal: One Year Later

Nepal

On April 25th, 2015, Nepal was hit with a 7.8 magnitude earthquake that struck mid-day and devastated the lives and communities of millions. In an effort to support those affected by the earthquake that devastated Nepal in April 2015, Tea worked quickly to aid in The Global Fund for Children’s emergency relief efforts. For one week, Tea matched all customer and employee donations and we’re proud to announce that together we raised over $8,900. We were blown away by this community and think it’s important to share the impact your donations have had on the Nepal community.

Gelato vs. Ice Cream

There’s no better companion on a bright, sunny day than a sweet scoop of ice cream or perhaps gelato depending on where you live. Our recent Italian adventures got us thinking about these two great treats. They’re so similar, yet so different. Is there really a difference between gelato and ice cream? Or did we just fall hard for gelato because we were so romanced by Italy as a whole?

Late last year, my sister was awarded the International Affairs Fellowship from the Council on Foreign Affairs, which required her to relocate to Tokyo for the immediate future. The whole family decided to take advantage of her overseas assignment and in March, we arrived in Japan seeking a cultural experience though food and fellowship.

Museums, markets, city centers, parks… These are all places you might find Tea designers out and about snapping photos and taking notes for our collections. Another place you may find them? In the lobby of their hotel. To make the most of each trip, we search high and low to find interesting places to stay. From boutique hotels outside of Jaipur to eclectic Airbnbs in Berlin, we make an effort to stay in places that are unique to that specific destination.

None of the places we’ve stayed have inspired us quite like the Parco dei Principi Hotel in Sorrento, Italy. From the tiles seen throughout the hotel to the clean lines of the mid-century furniture in our rooms—we just couldn’t get enough. Here’s an inside look at the hotel that inspired dozens of the styles in our summer collection.

History of Soccer

Whether you call it soccer, futbol, or something else entirely… Chances are that this sport plays an important role in your life. According to the Federation Internationale de Football Association (FIFA), more than 240 million people play soccer around the world. As the weather gets warmer and your little citizens pull their cleats and jerseys out of hibernation, we started thinking more about this beloved pastime and dove into all the great soccer information out there. So, in the spirit of Citizens FC, Tea’s Buy One, Give One soccer jersey program, we thought we’d take a moment to learn a little more about the history of soccer, a sport that brings people together all over the globe.
