Pioneering Peace: Celebrating #PeaceDay

Peaceful Tee Freerksen Family

Historically, peace is often memorialized by international and domestic negotiations, compromises, and diplomacy, marked by extensive legal agreements decorated with the autographs of world leaders. However, peace is not always defined by monumental events, rather, it is made of micro-moments… moments of trust, respect, empathy, and compassion.

At the end of the day, peace is much more than a treaty. Peace is about being able to see one another and recognizing that no matter what language we speak, what we look like, or where we come from, we all share more commonalities than differences. It’s celebrating those common threads that weave us all together, allowing us to understand and appreciate each other.

At Tea, we believe in peace for all little citizens of the world! As we travel, whether across the street or around the world, we keep our eyes—and our hearts—wide open. Wherever we are, wherever we go, we strive to be mindful and responsible, to make real connections—and a real difference.

Adventures in Rural Scotland

As summer comes to a close, and fall begins to breathe a sigh of cool relief, we leave behind the hustle and bustle of Glasgow and head for quieter, cozy pastures. From windswept highland farms to the far-flung isles of the Outer Hebrides, to the northernmost Shetland Islands, our newest styles draw inspiration from Scotland’s rural (coastal and countryside) regions.
