Dear CHA CHA TEA friends,
I hope you are safe and healthy.
Today, May 21 is International Tea Day. I appreciate all the people who make it possible for me to enjoy my tea journey. I enjoy tea every day at home and at my store, I learn a lot with my tea sommelier courses, and I am having fun experimenting by making cocktails and cooking with tea.
AND! Most of all, I appreciate YOU: my CHA CHA TEA customers. Thank you so very much for your support and encouragement. I am so lucky to have you in my tea circle.
In the middle of March, I was crying every day, not knowing what would happen to all of us and to my store. I was very scared. And I decided to close the door for public shopping from March 24th.
It has been almost 2 months. I am still coming to my store, receiving your tea orders by email, answering phone calls and fulfilling online orders every day. How lucky I am to be able to keep my business running. I miss you so much. I always savour our little chats. BUT! I still get to do what I like to do.

In general, people are so tired and stressed. We are all affected by this Pandemic. People who work for the customer service sector have made these comments to me: “Almost everybody is nice.” “The majority of people are OK.” or “95% of people are patient.” However, some people have been yelled at because things are inconvenient.
For me? 100% of my customers are AMAZING! Yes: 100%. Every single person. I have not had even one negative experience with you. You are all so kind and patient with me. Worrying about me, my store and my family. And even grateful that I sell tea to you. AMAZING.
So, on this International Tea Day, I am thinking of you, and I raise my cup in a toast to my lovely CHA CHA TEA FRIENDS!!
Join me in a cup of tea to celebrate International Tea Day!
Thank you for your continued support. Stay safe and Stay Awesome!
