A cup of tea and a helping hand

We believe that we can make the world a better place by making thoughtful and meaningful choices about what we buy. When it comes to gifting, both gift giver and gift receiver benefit from also giving back to our community in some way. It's why we've chosen to partner with women's shelters and artists to bring you our tea. 

Women's Community Shelters 

Up until late 2019 our hand folded tags were made in Sydney, employing the services of homeless women at shelters run by Women's Community Shelters (WCS). Our Tea Yarning Circles were a great way to connect and empower women through working together. Read about the Tanya's Tea Yarning experiences in her blog here. 

Our Tea Yarning Circles ended with Covid, so we currently donate $1 for every Hug in a Mug Tea Gift Box sold to WCS.

WCS works with communities to provide short term emergency accommodation and support in a safe, comfortable and secure environment that enables homeless women to rebuild self esteem and achieve control and fulfilment in their lives.
