Learn How to Make Beignets!

img_6065_32745641281_oOver 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. 

Meet the Kids Featured in Our Catalog!

We make globally inspired clothing for little citizens, and twice a year we travel to a new destination for inspiration, adventure and lots of photos of super cute kids decked out in our newest styles. This season, our collection comes all the way from Australia. We trekked across this wild, wonderful country with some awesome local children. From Sydney to the Outback, the rainforest to reefs, we explored, learned, made new friends and laughed (a lot) – plus, we got some great photos to share.

We believe in making connections across the street as well as across the world, and we also went to Austin, TX for a second spring/summer photoshoot. We held a casting call at our first ever pop-up shop at TOMS Roasting Co., and met tons of amazing little citizens and their families!

Adventures with Ranger Karen

“Alright, kids! Let’s get going. Remember, do everything I do. And make sure you walk around the emu poo!” And with that, Ranger Karen and her intrepid band of young explorers head off into the Aussie bush. Walkabout Wildlife Park, north of Sydney, is a wild and wonderful place where you can hang out with free-roaming wallabies and grey kangaroos, meet salty crocs and spiny echidnas and even pet a huge coastal carpet python named Yamba.

These Kids Love Tea!

#kidslovetea

We love seeing how our customers wear Tea. Real kids, doing real kid things like running through the yard, playing in dirt or having quiet moments at home. From your Instagram photo to the ones you upload through our Kids Love Tea gallery, it makes our day to see your little citizens, laugh, play and explore in Tea. In celebration of the weather warming up and being able to wear the newest spring styles (outside!), we partnered with Tea customers to see how they could wear our newest styles in their everyday life.

Driving Down the Great Ocean Road

greatoceanroad

Stretching 151 miles along Australia’s South-Eastern coast, the Great Ocean Road is the country’s most treasured coastal route. Home to small seaside towns, world class surf breaks and fern gully forests, this two-lane road takes travelers on a scenic journey. On their intrepid two week journey throughout Australia, our design team made the drive through the Great Ocean Road, stopping along the way to take in the sights, meet some locals and shop, of course! Come along on a journey as we share a slideshow of photos from their trip.

Animals of Australia

Did you know, Australia has more than 378 kinds of mammals, 828 types of birds, 4,000 species of fish, 300 kinds of lizards, 140 types of snakes, 2 crocodile species and around 50 types of marine mammals? That’s a lot of animals. Being the animal lovers we are, Australia has opened our eyes to so many animals we had only dreamed of before. Our designers spent two weeks traveling the vast Australia landscape. And they were lucky to meet quite a few furry creatures. Meet our new friend Pepper, the koala and see lots of other animals we found in Australia
