To our dear friends of Tea:
Like you, we are facing the weeks ahead with cancellations, closures and travel bans. There is uncertainty all around us and yet, we must stay calm, especially as parents whose kids are looking to us for guidance. We are learning (and quickly) from the experts who know better than we do about what is best during a pandemic – what is best not only for our own family but also for the larger community.
Our brand and company are all about connection and curiosity about the world. The Corona Virus will put Tea to the test of figuring out how we can stay connected to the world in our own backyard (literally). We can and we must. We are afraid of the virus spreading, and we are afraid of the impact on relationships and connections to (and with) the world. We must resist sadness, fear and isolation while we are hunkered down. We must stay connected and curious – caring for the greater community all around the globe.
We are collecting and sharing ideas for how families can use this time ahead at home with our families to connect with each other and to the world around us. We will share ideas on Instagram and on our blog. We are following the CDC and WHO guidelines including (and especially) “social distancing” which means working from home, staying at least six feet from other people and not traveling.
Believe me, this is not easy for a group of people who really love working together – and travel! Our community means everything to us. We love working with our small but mighty Tea team and we really love connecting with our customers. We treasure engaging in the world – and understand that this will look and feel different to us during this time. We’re focused on staying connected and curious.
Please stay connected with us. We love hearing from you.
