Australia’s magical rainforests and reefs stretch across the country. From the Daintree Rainforest in Queensland to the Gondwanan Rainforest near Byron Bay, Australia is home to some of the oldest rainforests in the world. The Daintree Rainforest is the largest continuous area of tropical rainforest in Australia. Along the coast of Queensland, the rainforest grows right down to the edge of the sea! The rainforest is home to 90% of Australia’s population of bats and butterflies! You can also find frogs, reptiles, birds and an amazing variety of plants and flowers. Being on the coast, the Daintree rainforest offers a rare combination of scenery, from the dense tropical rainforest covering to the white sandy beaches of the shore.
Meet Sumiya Khan, mom and long-time Tea customer, who embarked on the journey from Connecticut to Australia this past fall with her family of four. Follow along as she shares her story with us at Studio Tea.
Here at Tea, we want to give kids the world, to help them discover that no matter where we live or what our families look like, there is so much we all have in common. We travel to discover. To dream. To explore the wonder of the world around us, across the globe and across the street. Since 2002, we’ve traveled the world, always inspired by the people we meet and the places we see. Wherever we go, from Bali to Norway, Morocco to Japan, we take in all we can and bring it back to our headquarters here in San Francisco to design globally-inspired clothing for all little citizens.
Each month, we’ll be sharing a guest post by Andrea Fellman of Wanderlust Living, Andrea’s set out to interview global moms + dads who are very “Tea” – they look for adventure in their lives and strive to make the foreign familiar for their families through travel and curiosity! A long time Tea partner and a woman who truly embodies the Tea spirit, we’re thrilled to have Andrea as a foreign correspondent (she lives in Barcelona!). In Andrea’s second guest post, we’re introducing you to Christine, who lives with her family in Santa Cruz, California. Read on to learn more!
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 Jesse, our in-house photographer. Follow along as he shares tales from his trip to Iceland!
