Every Day is an Adventure

Exploring is always more fun when you bring friends along. For our adventures on Australia’s Fitzroy Island near the Great Barrier Reef, we invited the King family to join us. Stu and Elizabeth have been married for 10 years. He works in tech, she’s a doctor, and although they call Queensland home, they’ve lived all over the world. Stu is originally from South Africa, while Elizabeth is from Australia, which is where the couple first met.

Every day is Earth Day

Australia

We want to give kids the world, to help them discover that no matter where we live or what language we speak, there is so much we all have in common. As we travel, both around the world and in our own town, we keep our eyes—and our hearts—wide open. This season, we traveled to Australia, a wild and wonderful country filled with incredible people and natural beauty. We explored the land, from the cities to the vast outback. We observed animals in their natural habitat, walked through some of the oldest rainforests on the Earth and had a chance to view the magnificent Great Barrier Reef. We also had a chance to meet Jess Cramp, National Geographic Explorer and conservationist. She helped us learn the importance of guiding children to care about the Earth and their environment.

Meet Jess Cramp: National Geographic Explorer and Shark Guardian


“Curiosity and connection are a big part of conservation. Pick a shark in an ocean and see if you can figure out how that shark is connected to you.”

Summer in Austin: Meet our new friends!

Over the past few months, you’ve met some of our newest friends from Australia and Austin. We love introducing them to you and today, we’re sharing profiles of the kids from our summer Austin photo shoot. All of the kids we met, in Australia and Austin, were funny, sweet and completely unique. We loved getting to know them, and thought you’d enjoy it too. So we asked everyone a few fun questions about sharks, seafood and what they want to be when they grow up. Here are their answers … with a little help from mom and dad. Without further ado, meet our Austin friends!

Call of the Wild: An Inside look at our favorite Aussie birds!

Cool new graphics are a thing here at Tea. Each season, our designers work tirelessly to bring you beautifully (often hand-drawn) designs that emanate the feeling of our destination. This season with Australia, you’ve seen some amazing graphics. Everything from animals and flowers to sport and transportation. With our new summer styles, we’re very excited about our Lorikeet Skirted Dress. This dress features hand painted prints of wild parrots, cockatoos and lorikeets (all birds!) that call Australia their home. Here’s a look at these birds, in real life!

Behind the Design: LaPointe Graphic Dress

Sydney is a city full of design inspiration. On their trip, our designers were inspired by the world around them, from the shapes and colors of the local architecture to the food, flowers, greenery and animals. They were also drawn to the work of Australian artists whose work they saw throughout the cities murals, museums and shops.
