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.
From prickly towering cacti and resilient wild blooms, to crawling critters, the scenic Southwest is home to all kinds of desert wildlife. Come along as we explore across the sandy desert floors, through spiraling canyons and atop lone mesas, and keep your eyes out for earthy friends along the way! We’ll show you where to spot some of our favorite Southwestern species.
Mothers are truly remarkable. Day in and day out they pour their hearts into caring for others. And while being a mom is one of the single most rewarding responsibilities in the world, it’s no secret that it’s tough work.
As a mom, it’s important to find the time to pause and take a moment for yourself. So this Mother’s Day, we’re doing something a little different. We’re not asking you to share photos of your littles or what you love most about motherhood, or even talk about your best mom hacks—in fact, we want you to put all of those thoughts aside.
Instead, we want to celebrate the quiet moments in between. Whether it’s the 30 minute drive into work each morning tuned into your favorite podcast, the weekly yoga class you look forward to, your monthly date night with the girls, or a relaxing bath just because, what does restoration look like for you?
We asked the moms of Tea to share what ‘me’ time looks like for them, and we’re inviting you to share your own inspiration.
