This event was a great success and the Steep & Go's and tea were very well received by all our guests!

On Saturday, July 28th, The Tea Spot teamed up with Living Journeys as they hosted their 13th annual Summit Hike and 2nd Annual Mountain Half Marathon in Crested Butte, Colorado. This event is Living Journeys’ main fundraising event of the year and involves a hike to the top of Crested Butte Mountain. The Tea Spot donated loose tea and infusers to this event to support each of the participants. All of the funds raised during this event remain local and go directly into programs supporting community members suffering from cancer.

In honor of the Summit Hike and Mountain Half Marathon, The Tea Spot donated the newest products from their Steepware® line, 'Steep & Go' cold brew tea infusers, along with loose leaf tea samples for each of the 300+ participants at the event. Cold brewed tea is a natural source of antioxidants and minerals, and is great way to stay hydrated. Melissa Cunningham, Executive Director of Living Journeys, said "This event was a great success and the Steep & Go's and tea were very well received by all our guests!"
