DARJEELING, INDIA — Along the rough steep road up the Himalayas to this city known for its tea, a young woman walks bent double under a load. She's carrying rocks in a basket on her back, with a strap over her forehead. Women will pound the rocks to break them up and make concrete. In West Bengal, India, girls who are orphaned or whose parents are poor can look ahead to this kind of hard labor. If they are lucky, they might get field work picking tea on one of the many tea plantations for about $2 a day. Read More

I have a thing for little local tea houses, despite the fact that I actually don’t love tea all that much.

The Learning Tea Helps With Free Art Friday in Atlanta

The Learning Tea was the most recent location in Atlanta to hold art from Free Art Friday. Free Art Friday is an art scavenger hunt that happens on the first Friday of every month. Participants make art and place it around town for others to find and take home. Clues are then released to the location of the art and the hunt begins.

Free Art Friday approached The Learning Tea to host the art location for September 2012. Clues about The Learning Tea and the scholarships we provide to impoverished Darjeeling women in India were broadcast to help spread awareness about our cause.
