“Auction of the World’s Finest Teas” to benefit HandReach.org

A number of very generous and respectable tea companies, including Imperial Tea Court, Jaya Teas, Tea Classics/Hancha Tea, Rishi Tea, Eco-Prima Tea, The Meaning of Tea, Den’s Tea, and Teaism, have donated tea, tea-related products and other items to an auction and event to raise funds for the work that HandReach.org is doing with its Children’s Healing Initiative.

“Auction of the World’s Finest Teas” consists of a live auction, which will take place November 18th, from 7:00pm to 9:00pm at Teaism in Washington, DC and an eBay charity auction, which anyone can participate in by placing bids, up until the start of the live auction tomorrow evening. This is an opportunity to purchase some very special teas and also to provide aid to an organization involved in some valuable work.

HandReach.org Tea Auction

The full description of the event from HandReach.org’s website:

“HandReach’s first annual tea auction benefits the Children’s Healing Initiative, an international medical project working to develop infrastructure supporting the treatment of young trauma survivors in tea-producing regions of the world.

The event will feature appearances by luminaries from the international tea community, fabulous live music, sampling of some of the world’s finest teas, cocktails and light refreshments, and a chance to network with extraordinary people from all over the world.

All proceeds from the event will support bringing expertise and resources to provide world-class acute, reconstructive, and psychosocial care for child survivors of debilitating trauma injuries for whom needed medical care is out of reach.”

I was alerted to this event by a post on Walker Tea Review.

  1. Thanks for the heads up! This is a great looking event with a lot of intriguing items on the eBay half. I’m not sure I’m feeling rich enough to spend a minimum of $500 on one pound of jasmine pearls from Rishi, but there are some more reasonably-priced items and it’s all going to a very good cause. Fun!
