Share Your City: Touring Small-Town Utah with Makelle Ahlin

At Tea, we believe in making the foreign familiar. We travel the world, each season setting out to explore a new far-off country. We seek out the foreign, immersing ourselves in the customs, colors, tastes and sounds of distant cultures, and venture to find and connect over common threads. But the truth is, adventures don’t always call for a packing list or a passport.

Summer marks the start of adventure, and in an effort to spark exploration right here in our own backyard, we’ve asked Tea families across the US to show us around their cities and share some of the incredible places that make them special. 

From iconic buildings and historical attractions to frequently favored spots, follow along for the inside scoop on their hometown highlights.

Our first stop? Small-town Southern Utah. We join Makelle Ahlin and her band of “Lost Boys” (husband Jared, and three sons, Cooper, Boone and Grizz) as they guide us through striking, sleepy scenery and point out hidden gems along the way.

Southwest Summer Stylin’

Summer is here, and we’ve got our sights set on the Southwestern states. The Southwest US is a vast canvas filled with shimmering stretches of desert, rusty red rock forms, desolate grasslands and clear, sunny skies that seem to have no stopping point. Some may think it a lonely, barren landscape, but look closely and you’ll see there’s so much beauty among the quietude.

Mexican Motifs: Oaxacan Florals

Mexico is a country rich in incredible culture, tradition and creative expression. Toward the southern tip lies Oaxaca, a state particularly famous for its fascinating mix of colonial buildings, colorful cuisine and strong indigenous influence (more than half of the nation’s indigenous Mesoamerican speakers call this rugged region home). A collector’s dream, it is the place to go for the best folk art finds.
