We absolutely love seeing how you coordinate your Tea Collection styles for siblings. Some of you go with coordinating colors while others choose the same dress for all four girls. They’re all so good! Today we’re sharing 10 different outfitting options for your big girl and little girl in an effort to make summer shopping a little easier. So many patterns, so many styles!

Nepal: One Year Later

Nepal

On April 25th, 2015, Nepal was hit with a 7.8 magnitude earthquake that struck mid-day and devastated the lives and communities of millions. In an effort to support those affected by the earthquake that devastated Nepal in April 2015, Tea worked quickly to aid in The Global Fund for Children’s emergency relief efforts. For one week, Tea matched all customer and employee donations and we’re proud to announce that together we raised over $8,900. We were blown away by this community and think it’s important to share the impact your donations have had on the Nepal community.

Behind the Design: Fish Tales

Fish Market in Italy

Being a peninsula, Italy is surrounded by beautiful turquoise seas. Fish and marine life play a major part in Italian culture – from the art to the cuisine. While traveling up the coast, we stopped at a fish market and marveled at how many different types of fish were for sale. We even had a chance to chat with a real fisher-woman! We’re sharing a behind-the-scenes look at some of our favorite graphic tees inspired by Italian sea life.

Gelato vs. Ice Cream

There’s no better companion on a bright, sunny day than a sweet scoop of ice cream or perhaps gelato depending on where you live. Our recent Italian adventures got us thinking about these two great treats. They’re so similar, yet so different. Is there really a difference between gelato and ice cream? Or did we just fall hard for gelato because we were so romanced by Italy as a whole?

Where will the long days and warm weather of summer take you and your little citizens? To the beach? The mountains? Or maybe even a new city? Some of our favorite summer adventures have been road trips with many stops along the way, lazy days near a lake or barbecues with friends and family in the backyard.

Late last year, my sister was awarded the International Affairs Fellowship from the Council on Foreign Affairs, which required her to relocate to Tokyo for the immediate future. The whole family decided to take advantage of her overseas assignment and in March, we arrived in Japan seeking a cultural experience though food and fellowship.
