Posted to the PBT blog (plumblossomtea.com) the last two backlogged quarantea ceremonies of April. As of the end of October, I have done 40 Japanese tea ceremonies. To make my goal of 52...averaging 1/week in 2020, I will have to be disciplined in my practice.

PLUM BLOSSOM TEA COMPANY
Closing the physical space, for now.

Thank you to all of you who have spent time in the teashop tasting tea, slowing down, learning about the tea, tea ceremony, and yourselves. You have fueled my passion for the teashop as an educational space. We originally opened the physical location for Plum Blossom Tea Company because tea is experiential.

At this time, the shift to social distancing has made tea tasting in a retail space seem counter-intuitive to health and well-being.

Plum Blossom Tea Co is not going away, we are simplifying and shifting.

Yes, we will continue to make available premium quality organic teas. You can order online www.plumblossomtea.com and pick up at Heart of Zen (106 Adams St. In Suttons Bay).

My personal disciplines will continue: Zen shiatsu and Asian medicine; practicing Japanese tea ceremony; doing qigong; sitting zazen; training in martial arts; tending my gardens, so that when things shift again, we will be ready.

We have not yet made video demos for tea, although this might change! That said, we are happy to communicate by phone, text, email, or live video chat.

Stay well, drink tea!
Michelle

Update from Plum Blossom Tea Company about COVID-19

We’ve made some changes due to COVID-19

Dear Plum Blossom Tea Company community,

As you might already be aware, we have temporarily closed our physical doors due to COVID-19 related community health recommendations.

β€’ We are still in the business of providing you with the highest quality whole leaf teas from China, Japan, Taiwan, and Vietnam

β€’ You can still order elegant matcha, teas and teawares at our online store.

β€’ While we miss sharing tea tastings and Japanese tea ceremony with you in person, you can follow us on Facebook and Instagram where we will be sharing tea experiences.

If you’re looking for more ways to protect yourself and your loved ones, check out the CDC (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html) website.

Thank you so much for helping us keep our small local business alive, especially during this pivot to a new way of behaving. We are grateful to be supporting each other, one cup of tea at a time.

Peace and health,
Michelle & Doug

Beautiful Saturday in Sutton's Bay. In the tea shop on the last day of September.
What a wonderful tea experience at Plum Blossom Tea, with owner Michelle Racich. We came in out of curiosity and immediately felt so peaceful, when she invited us to sit with her and try some of her pure teas. Can't wait to go back. Thanks again Michelle.
