Hurricane Sandy hit New York City incredibly hard this week. Our tea atelier in Brooklyn is on the first street parallel to the river and we certainly expected and planned for flooding overnight on Monday. We had our friends in the neighborhood check on the atelier throughout the very stressful night. We have been spared by the powerful storm surge that Hurricane Sandy brought to so many in New York City and beyond. We have power, we are dry and our teas are safe. At home and throughout our neighborhoods we lost many beautiful trees but considering the power of this damaging storm we are feeling extremely thankful.


Our hearts go out to all our friends effected by the Sandy who are without homes, without power or recovering from the stress of the storm.
