At Tea, we believe in the transformative power of travel and connection. Every time we experience a new place, we gain new perspective about the world, and ourselves. But cultural discoveries don’t just happen abroad… you can find them just down the road. We’ve asked Tea families across the US to show us around their hometowns and share some of the incredible places that set them apart.
Next on our Share Your City tour, we spend a day in Canton, Ohio with Elizabeth Jacob and her daughter Jessica. Follow along they give us the inside scoop on the best things to see and do in their charming city.
School is out and summer adventures are beckoning! To spark the fun, we’ve asked Tea families across the US to show us around their hometowns and share some of the incredible places that make them special.

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.
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)! Jason, Tea’s Reporting and Back Office Manager, had his travel itinerary set on Mexico City and has since returned to tell us all about his cultural experience.
The Southwest is alive with the vibrant folk art motifs that are so characteristic of indigenous artwork found all over Mexico. Developed by the native Otomi people in the small, plateau town of Tenango, are some of the most fantastic embroidered textiles we’ve ever set eyes on. Drawing inspiration from bold colors, animals, and floral prints, the time-honored tradition of Otomi embroidery is hinted at in a handful of our summer styles.
