I found out about Tea collection clothing a few years ago, and absolutely loved their styles for children, so I was quite excited when I was asked if I wanted to review some items from their new collection.  Tea sets itself apart from other clothiers with their cosmopolitan take on clothing.  Here it is in the words of Emily Meyer, Co-Founder and Chief Creative Officer

Travel opens anyone’s heart and mind to people and places that we don’t know. The clothing we create at Tea transforms the foreign world into a smaller, friendlier and more familiar place. We believe that we bring a little bit of that world home to you.

I love to travel, and I love learning about and experiencing different cultures so I really appreciate that Tea brings a taste of the world to us through their clothing line. For the fall, Tea has introduced two new collections…

Just a hop and a skip south of the border took us to Modern Mexico. First stop, Mexico City. We fell in love with gardens and courtyards, pottery and painted patterns of blue. We strolled through many manicured gardens (some of them secret) and had our first encounter with the mythical Mesoamerican Nahual influences. They set us off on a journey to find our protective animal spirits….We came back home ready to try our own hand at mixing contemporary kitsch with Mexican folk art and layering floral and plaid patterns and textures with embroidery. We took sarape patterns and brought them to life in striped splendor on ponchos and hoodies. The magic of Mexico came back with us in two-tone azul patterns, flower prints and colorful graphics with a Mayan and pop culture spirit. We know you’ll love how it comes to life in our back-to-school clothes.

From the “super stripes and magical Mayan jaguars” of Jardin Azul collection to the Mercado Mexicano collection where Modern Mexico pop culture meets designer children’s clothing you’ll get fashion with a touch of Mexico.  I absolutely love the Mercado Mexico collection!  I think the luchador and mariachi tees are too funny, and I’m just a fan of the modern Mexico look in general.

I was sent the Hombres Stripe Henley and Jaquares de Chiapas tee from the Jardin Azul collection, as well as the Surplus Playwear Pants for Little Brother.  The pants are a little tight around his fairly large belly and thighs, but he’ll probably slim down a little as he grows. (sorry my pictures are all blurry; I didn’t realize that there was a certain child’s fingerprints all over the lens. 🙂

Looking so cool in his Chiapas tee!

Big Brother got the Hombres Stripe Henley and Equipo Nahual Tee as well as the Super Side Stripe Pants from the Jardin Azul collection.  Unlike Little Brother with the portly belly, Big Brother is ultra slender and the pants were too big for his waist.  Size aside, the pants are very cute and very high quality as far as little boys pants go.

What a tease!

    Your website looks great. I love tea. I like all their clothes, really, but love the mirabella dress...red and white print. i think that is the name.
  2. Thanks for sharing....as the mom of three little ones I enjoyed your review. I really like the Androna Yoke Dress for girls....it is our favorite!
  3. I am loving the Talevera dresses! What beautiful patterns. I have been purchasing items from every line for my two and three-year-old girls ever since I learned about Tea Collection clothes. The quality is fantastic, the items don't shrink and wash very well. I absolutely love the unique prints and styles and they get tons of compliments on their outfits. I will be sending them to preschool in wardrobes made primarily of Tea Collection, and since items are mix and match, my husband will surely be able to send them out the door looking adorable!
  4. Check the maker's site for further information and tips on the appliance in your home. Often all of the plumbers have the knowledge, training and tools to be able to identify a problem and create a quality repair. Put the plunger as far into the toilet as you can and push it up and down repeatedly.
