Empowered women, empower women.

Can a cup of tea change the world? We think so.

When you brew a mug of Tease Tea, you’re not just making a feel-good choice for yourself.

We dedicate a portion of the proceeds of every Tease Tea purchase to support organizations on a mission to empower women and young girls.

For 2019, our Charitea effort is comprised of three programs, representing our core values at Tease Tea:

1. EMPOWERING YOUNG GIRLS THROUGH EDUCATION

Plan Canada International is a global movement for change. Every year, they mobilize millions of people around the world to support social justice for children in developing countries. In 2018 alone, they equipped more than 18 million girls with vital opportunities to lead their own change and drive their own lives. We will be supporting their “Because I Am A Girl” initiative to fulfill our core value of empowering young girls through education. One day, these will be the women who shape our world.

2. EMPOWERING WOMEN THROUGH GENDER BALANCE & EQUALITY

Women for Women International supports women living in conflict-affected countries around the world. Their programs teach women how to earn and save money, improve their family’s health, and make their voices heard at home and in their community. To date, Women for Women International has helped over 500,000 of the world’s most marginalized women to gain the skills, confidence, and hope they need to rebuild their lives and their futures. Tease has selected Women for Women International to support our mission to empower women through gender balance and equality. Tease is aiming to sponsor as many sisters as we can through our proceeds.

3. EMPOWERING WOMEN THROUGH ENTREPRENEURSHIP

The Founders Fund, presented by Tease Tea, is a four-month digital program that gives women entrepreneurs access to funding, mentorship and resources to grow their businesses. In 2019, we funded five women-founded companies and supported 200+ applicants through our online programming. We created the Founders Fund to carry out our mission to empower women through entrepreneurship. Tease Tea wouldn’t be what it is today if we didn’t have the support of our entrepreneurial community, so we make it our mission to pay it forward.

Throughout the year, we will be sharing global success stories about all of these selected partners and programs. This is a new path for Charitea, but it’s an exciting time and we can’t wait to share what we have in store this coming year!

Take a look at the different "Chariteas" our Tease community has supported prior to 2019. Thank you to every Tease lover who has supported our mission to empower women, one sip at a time.
