Tea travels the world. We truly go there. We travel to discover. To dream. To explore the wonder of the world around us, across the globe and across the street. Since 2002, we’ve traveled, always inspired by the people we met and the places we see. Wherever we go, from Bali to Norway, West Africa to Morocco, we take in all we can and bring it back to design globally-inspired clothing for your little citizen. Here’s a look at where we’ve been and an exciting announcement on where we are headed to next!
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)!

Tyson Wong, our Email Marketing Manager has a big clan – 3 kids… under the age of 5! – And was brave enough to travel to Mexico. This bilingual family looked forward to spending their days on the beach and strolling through the markets, immersing themselves in the culture completely. You’re going to love the story from these intrepid travelers!
At the very southern end of South America, spanning all of Argentina and part of Chile, lies a sparsely populated region called Patagonia. To the west you’ll find the Andes mountains and Pacific Ocean, to the east the steppes and grasslands and Atlantic Ocean. We visited Patagonia, trekked the frozen blue wonderland of the Perito Moreno Glacier and explored the wild steppe with an intrepid guide names Julian, who showed us lots of Criollo horses, wild herds of guanaco, super-fast jackrabbits and a gigantic Andean condor. Come on a journey with us as we share stories of trekking a glacier, riding in a jeep over the barren grasslands of the Patagonia steppe and finding inspiration in the smallest details.
It’s easy to fall in love with Buenos Aires. The sounds of Tango music in the streets of San Telmo, the scent of the panaderías and their sweet treats and all of the beautiful architecture… What’s not to love? When our design team took their inspiration trip through Argentina, they were able to experience the sights and sounds of the many barrios (or neighborhoods) of Buenos Aires. Here, we’ve rounded up some of their favorite things to eat, do, see and places to shop if you ever find yourself in the “Paris of South America“.
We’re sure your little citizens could identify a guitar or a piano from a line up… but what about a bandoneón? Our guess is that a bandoneón might even stump many adults! This instrument is an essential part of tango music, the most popular music of Argentina.
