Meet Kaley from Kansas

When we first came across Amanda Watters’ blog, it was this post on her new family of five that we loved most. We swooned over the photography and knew that while Amanda’s family would be a dream to work with, Kaley from Kansas would have to be the one to capture the magic. Her airy photos were just perfect -she captures those little moments that only a skilled eye and a full heart can produce.

A Trip Through Italy & Croatia

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)! Wendy, Tea’s Boy Merchandiser, traveled through Italy and Croatia with her boyfriend (now fiancé – read on!). Here she shares stories of devouring gelato in Rome and wandering through the Old City in Croatia.

Summer Adventures

Dreaming of sunny beach days and backyard barbecues? Summer will be here before we know it. The reality? The kids will be out of school and after just a few blissful days… they’re going to be “so bored”. We’re sure you have the basics lined up – camps, babysitters, play dates, maybe even a week-long vacation if you’re lucky, but we’re here to help you think outside the box. We want to help you make the foreign familiar in your own home. Across the globe, we travel to bring inspiration back home to you. Across the street, we’re showing you ways to have fun summer adventures inspired by our travels through Italy!

Meet Amanda Watters & Bev Weidner

Watters Family & Friends

We fell in love with Mama Watters’ crisp photos and thought her family could be perfect for our summer collection. When we reached out, we were delighted to hear that Tea Collection was already a part of her family’s story. We learned that the day her son Theo was born, Amanda’s oldest, Stella, arrived at the hospital dressed in Tea. So, we did what we do best—we packed our bags and took off to spend a few days in Kansas City with Amanda and her family and invited Bev Weidner and her little girl Natalie to join the fun!
