FOREIGN CORRESPONDENTS: A Family Trip Through Greece

paragraph 1Our summer was magical.  We are so lucky to be able to bring our children to the place of their roots, Greece, where my parents grew up and where my husband’s paternal grandfather hailed from, too.  Greece is a country that loves children, embraces the sun, respects the sea, and takes great pride in its very ancient history.

Our grandparents in Belgium, live near the “kattekensberg” or the “cat mountain”. In the 19th century the inhabitants of the city of Antwerp, were attracted to this beautiful green region with its prairies, birch woods and sand mountains, to relax. My cousin and I play in our camp in the forest of the cat mountain and afterwards eat my Grandad’s pancakes!

My brother and I explore Tarragona, a city in the north of Spain where the Romans (200 BC) built impressive “bread and circuses” infrastructure to please people, we came across this statue of a mommy wolf. We have heard stories of bad wolves chasing pigs or red riding hood, but this one seems to be feeding two little brothers. We would not want to exchange our mom for a wolf. But we are pretty good at building stuff, like these two brothers boys Romulus and Remus who eventually built Rome. continue reading

A Trip Through South Korea & Thailand

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). Tea’s e-commerce site manager, Priscilla Wong, traveled to South Korea and Thailand and shares her a piece of her adventure with us here today…

I’ve been so blessed to be able to travel so often while working at Tea. During my most recent trip, I traveled to South Korea and Thailand.  My first stop was Seoul.   It is apparent in Seoul that the old meets the new when it comes to buildings.  I loved seeing the traditional buildings from Korea’s storied past right next to modern designs from today’s architectural greats.  My favorite architectural landmark in Seoul was their City Hall.  It looked like a giant tidal wave in the middle of a bustling roundabout.  Neon lights, organic building shapes, and state of the art public transportation are abundant in this metropolis. It’s amazing how clean the city is, yes, even their public buses. Amazing! We spent many hours studying our map and finding free wifi to help us get where we needed to go. After turning down one too many wrong streets, we soon found out that sometimes the best places are the places you stumble upon, like the fried chicken neighborhood in Seoul!  Imagine, streets and streets filled with Korean Fried Chicken restaurants all competing for your business – my personal dream.  How do you pick when you can’t read the local language? Pick the one with the most patrons! We lucked out and had the best fried chicken of our lives.  Each piece was perfectly fried with just the right amount of breading in every bite. continue reading

The Warm Up – Fall Accessories

tea collection fall accessories

This fall, as we launch our latest collection inspired by the plains and prairies of the La Pampa region of Argentina, our accessories become a whole lot cozier and our shoes, a little more rugged. Soft scarves and knit hats will keep them warm as temperatures drop. Smartwool socks to keep toes toasty. Boots that will lead your little citizens on expeditions through school halls and jumping into the leaves. See what’s new at Tea! continue reading
