Fresh, Spring Recipes Worth Celebrating

Special occasions can happen anywhere—at school, at church, at grandma’s house and often times right at home. When your family and friends are together, so many special moments can be had and food is certainly always almost a part of it. It can be tough to find meals that please everyone, but with the help of a few of our Tea Ambassadors, we’ve put together a spring menu perfect for all occasions. Here are some fresh, healthy and kid-friendly recipes for you! 

Spring Celebrations: Party Planning DIY’s for Little Citizens

On the set of our spring catalog shoot in Australia, we planned to set up a table fit for a spring celebration. As we unpacked pillows, plates and everything in between, the kids couldn’t wait to get things ready. Excited for their party, they jumped in and had a blast helping get everything in place. The key to helpful little ones? Make prep fun! Here are some ideas on how to get your kids involved with party planning.

A Letter to a Refugee

Here at Tea, we continuously strive to be mindful and responsible in everything we do. We care so much for the little citizens all over the world, near and far. We want to make real connections—and a real difference. But we can’t effect change everywhere. Although the refugee crisis is happening half a world away from our little office in San Francisco, we continue to support them.

As the Global Citizen organization notes, “Sometimes words alone can make a difference. They can brighten someone’s day, change someone’s mind, and unlock your own emotions.”

That’s why, we’re standing with Global Citizen to say we haven’t forgotten you. We’ve written a letter to the refugee children and we’re asking you to do the same. Head on over to GlobalCitizen.org and write a letter to a refugee man, woman, child group or family and let them know you are supporting them, too. Global Citizen will compile all of the notes into a book to provide to refugee agencies to share your messages with those that need to hear them the most.

Travels in Japan: A Tea Employee’s Tour of Japan

1To 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!

An Inside Look at our Insiders Weekend

Tea Insiders
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.

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. 

Learn How to Do a Sunprint DIY

17SP2_E_G02_02Curiosity 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.
