A few words on the COVID-19 crisis


by Tea Kitamura April 07, 2020

This is a challenging time around the world.

We’ve all been impacted by the coronavirus and it’s not an exaggeration to say that it feels like our lives have been turned upside down. If you are an essential worker, thank you for everything that you are doing for the rest of us. And to everyone, we hope that you are safe and well.

While we understand that it is far from “business as usual” right now, we’d like to take this opportunity to let you know how we’re handling the situation and how it impacts you, our customer.

We are fortunate to be an online shop that has (so far) been minimally affected by this crisis. For now, we’re doing our best to keep everything running as smoothly as possible so you can continue to make and receive orders. 

The coronavirus spreads mainly from person to person. While there is a possibility that the virus can spread through contaminated surfaces, the chances of this remain very low. Please rest assured that we are taking all necessary precautions on our side and following recommended protocols to ensure everyone’s safety, including our employees, vendors, and customers. 

Tea has long been a source of comfort and a reliable remedy to combat stress and anxiety. We hope brewing and drinking our tea brings some peace and calmness to your day and helps make a challenging time a little easier, if only for a few minutes.

As we continue to navigate these uncertain times, we want to thank you for your support and also encourage you to support other small businesses however you can. Our communities are what keep us going through even the toughest situations.

We are stronger together.


P.S. If you’d like to minimize the number of packages you’re receiving, you can always order Tea Kitamura products from Amazon.
