Covid-19, A New Kind of Brew
A busy work and travel schedule has taken me away from the computer for the most part, and as a result, I haven't blogged in over a year. This is a strange time for sure and I am grateful for all the tea in my coffers because I get to enjoy quite a few cups on a daily basis.
The Covid-19 virus has put a damper on things. I have been grounded in New York, unable to return to Scandinavia at the moment. Liquid Gold Tea is a small business. To be sure, it's a one-woman show. I source, I teach, I package, I sell and I mail. Immersing myself in the world of tea has been one of the greatest joys of my life. A great passion I continue to nurture on a daily basis, tea gives me great comfort, keeping me calm and happy.
This is an emotional time for everyone. Taking a deep breath, I am letting you know that Liquid Gold Tea has shut down its private tea rooms in Copenhagen, Malmö and New York, along with its offerings of corporate and private educational tastings and workshops, until further notice. Many of my previously scheduled and upcoming classes and events have now been canceled, but I do believe there is a light at the end of this tunnel. Let's see just how bright it shines in the coming months.
That said, I am still shipping tea and bamboo charcoal, so do place your orders in the next few weeks. Also please know that it will take approximately 2 weeks to fulfill any request. Please understand that I work directly with farmers in China. Covid-19 is a new kind of brew that has stopped communication with these wonderful masters. It is hard to say when the lines of communication will once again open, but I will eventually run out of tea unless some miracle happens in the coming months.
This is a great time for reflection, as I figure out what Liquid Gold Tea will offer moving forward because we are going to survive this. Until the day I am able to share tea with you again at my table, please be safe and stay healthy. Drink plenty of fluids and make sure you have your daily dose of tea. It is, after all, the number one "herb" in Chinese herbal medicine.
With appreciation for your continued support, I wish you good health, happiness, and prosperity during these challenging times. The road ahead is steep, but collectively, we will get through it.
Hugs and kisses and happy cupping to all,
