Activity: Find Your Local Tea Retailer

Exploring Tea Retailer Sweet Pea

This photo was taken in front of Sweet Pea, a Tea retailer located in Traverse City, Michigan.

Tea was born in 2002 with 3 pima cotton baby sweaters inspired by the simple, elegant and graceful designs of traditional Chinese clothing. These sweaters were first sold by Bell & Trunk, a local boutique in San Francisco.  By the end of year one, Tea could be found in 50 local retailers. Now, 10 years later, we’re in over 300 and online.

To help us celebrate our 10 year anniversary, we encourage you to find your closest local Tea Retailer. Once you’re there, snap a picture in front of the store sign and submit it to our “Around the World Activity Contest” on Facebook for your chance to win a $500 Tea shopping spree or one of ten weekly prizes!

To find your local Tea retailer, visit our store locator.

Brazilian Music Children's Activity

Leigh Rawdon's (Tea Co-Founder) son has fun making Brazilian music!

This activity was inspired by our Boy’s Lapa Polo Shirt. The Lapa Polo first debuted in Destination: Brazil in Spring 2009.

Boys Lapa Polo Shirt

It was named for a neighborhood in Rio with a lively nightlife and has a lively multi-colored dot print. We’re betting it goes with your Little Citizen’s lively personality!

Activity Printout: Katut Motorbike

Did we see a rooster riding a motorbike when we stopped by Katut’s shop? In Bali, many fourth-born children are named Katut. This means you could have the same name as many of your friends!
