Thanksgiving @ The Bowery Mission

I can’t think of a better event in New York City to put a proper prospective on the true meaning behind Thanksgiving, than the Bowery Mission’s Thanksgiving Dinner.  Over 7,000 meals served out with Mayor Bloomberg, Commissioner Kelly, and NYC’s favorite iced on hand.  It was an amazing gathering, and we can’t thank the Bowery […]

Get to Know: HoT’s Instagrammer in Residence

It’s been a real pleasure getting to know our Instagrammer in Residence, Jackii.  She’s the first recipient of Heart of Tea’s Creative Fund–our way of helping NYC’s budding creatives further their art and art projects–and we must say, we couldn’t be more thrilled with her work.  But, it dawned on us, while we’ve been able to […]

Giving Back NYC: Earth Day New York

It’s been two weekends since Heart of Tea–New York City’s very own local, premium iced tea–decided to do a little giving back with Earth Day New York.   What a time we had.  Did you come and see us?  Did that springtime urge for sweet tea overtake you, directing your palate to a pop-up oasis of premium sweet tea? […]

Giving Back to NYC — Bowery Mission

Giving back to NYC and helping The Bowery Mission help New Yorkers.  One blog post at a time.   It’s been over a month since we last praised The Bowery Mission and their great work with NYC’s homeless population. Too long.   The last occasion to prompt a Bowery Mission post?  Their support of Don’t […]

Giving Back — NYC

Giving back to NYC.   It’s one of Heart of Tea’s greatest purposes in life.  (Yes, Heart of Tea is a living organism with a beating heart.)  But you already know this.  Still, it bears repeating.  We feel it so strongly, this pull to give back to the community we love, the city that’s given us […]

HoT Volunteering in NYC: 826 NYC

Volunteering in NYC ought be easy enough, but it’s not.   It’s an endeavour.       Just finding a charity you kinda like, let alone one that’s worth your time, let alone one you feel really enthusiastic about–the kind you look forward to spending hours of your Sunday helping–can be a challenge in a city this big and varied. […]

Heart of Tea at Thanksgiving: NYC, Tradition, and Pie

What’s this Thanksgiving thing all about?     You don’t need Heart of Tea to tell you about Thanksgiving in NYC or elsewhere, but we’re going to (try) anyway.  Think of it as an exercise in thankfulness and tradition.   NYC is where Thanksgiving really happens for so many.  Texas, California, Ohio–the country tunes in […]
