Happy Thanksgiving From Tea Ave!

We’re so grateful to be celebrating our second Thanksgiving here at Tea Ave, and we’re celebrating in a big way: Through the end of the month, get super-festive deals on tons of oolong – plus BOGO tea bags

(hint: gift one box to a friend and another to yourself.)

Here are a few fun facts about T-day:

  • More than 200 years after the first Thanksgiving, President Abraham Lincoln declared the final Thursday in November as a national day of thanksgiving. Congress finally made Thanksgiving Day an official national holiday in 1941.
  • Benjamin Franklin wanted the turkey to be the national bird, not the eagle.
  • Americans eat 46 million turkeys each Thanksgiving.
  • Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin's first meal in space after walking on the moon was foil packets with roasted turkey.
  • The heaviest turkey on record, according to the Guinness Book of Records, weighs 86 pounds.
  • There are four places in the U.S. named Turkey (but you don’t have to live in one of them to eat one, whew).
