“One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.” – Neil Armstrong
Americans have always dreamed big. That’s why Neil Armstrong made it to the moon on July 20, 1969.
Today, we are surrounded by innovation. With a growing database of facts and information at our fingertips, we, more so than ever, have the ability to defy limitations and pursue even the most far-reaching ideas. New technologies pave the way for new thinking, and ever greater possibilities. Just like the innovators and inventors who came before them, your little citizens can do anything they set their mind to. We are all born curious, all it takes is a little imagination!
Did you know? The first successful American automobile was built in 1893 by Massachusetts-based bicycle mechanics J. Frank and Charles Duryea. Rev up your little one’s imagination with our Race Car Graphic Tee and Race Car Raglan Romper .
Did you know? In 1903, the Wright brothers made man’s first self-propelled flight in a powered, heavier than air aircraft.
Just 58 years later, Alan Shepard led the first American mission to space.
Set their sights high, and show your little guys and gals that out-of-this-world ideas are achievable. Suit up for the occasion with outfits made to inspire their inner astronaut.
Sally Ride was the first American woman (and youngest American) to launch into space. An homage to brave space explorers like Sally, our Astronaut Graphic Tee and Space Girl Graphic Tee will always remind her to keep reaching for the stars.
If you can dream it, you can do it. What’s your dream?
Say hello to indigo! It’s no secret that America has a long-standing indigo obsession, and trending this season is a revival of this original American basic. From deep indigo to vintage denim, blues in every hue are popping up everywhere this spring!
This year, we’ve packed our bags and set out to explore a world a little closer to home. Our trip across the US begins in the south, where sunshine rules and hospitality is a way of life. See how the culture and creativity of the region inspired our latest spring styles.
At Tea, curiosity is at the heart of everything we do. Twice a year, we set off for a new country in search of new inspiration and new experiences. We seek out the foreign, immersing ourselves in the customs, colors, tastes and sounds of distant cultures. We relish in the wonder and uniqueness of our discoveries, and venture to find familiar, common threads.
While it’s always exciting to explore faraway places, there’s so much beauty and diversity right here in our own backyard. This year, we’re staying close to home and getting to know our neighbors all over the US—a nation that’s as diverse in its geography as it is in its citizenry. From sea to shining sea, people are what make this place so extraordinary. Inspired by first nation peoples and immigrants from all corners of the globe, our 2018 collection celebrates the cultures and creative spirit that make us all uniquely American. This land is our land—come explore!
In 2002, Emily Meyer and Leigh Rawdon embarked on an adventure to bring to the world a different kind of children’s clothing—clothing that has meaning woven into its very fibers, that inspires curiosity and connection in even the littlest of wearers. Thus Tea was born, with three pima cotton baby sweaters. Since then, Tea has grown its collection to include hundreds of globally inspired styles for little citizens sizes 0-12. But boy, do they grow fast. As moms and dads, we know it, and you’ve said it. Like you, we want nothing more than her to keep growing with Tea… and now she can, all the way up to size 16! This year, we’re expanding our collection one step further, with exclusive new styles designed for your growing-up girl.
When we set off for Scotland in search of inspiration for this season’s collection, we never imagined the wonder we’d find there. From the 6,200-mile stretch of windswept coast to Edinburgh’s charming labyrinth of cobbled streets, through quiet rural pastures and on up into the majestic highlands, beauty surrounded us everywhere we went. Each striking landscape held its own unique set of treasures—stories of mythical creatures, time-honored traditions, and real-life fairy tale castles. Every region rich with history, and every bit fascinating. We couldn’t wait to get back and share all of our experiences with you; and how fun it’s been recounting the stories and hearing your reactions these past few months.
As the year comes to a close and we prepare to launch into our next destination, let’s take a moment to look back at a few of your favorites from Scotland.
Old, new, tried-and-true: every year, families across the globe come together to ring in the holidays with their own unique blend of traditions. This season, in an effort to take a slightly different approach to celebrating, Sara Arrington, Tea mom and blogger of Little Bits of Us, is here to share her list of ten holiday traditions to try.
