Ground control to Life in Teacup

Does anyone know the fate of one of my favorite tea sources, Life in Teacup? No ability to buy online just now. Blog from the owner reveals the desire to move out of the business end. Say it ain’t so!

I’ve been waiting for them to open back up but didn’t realize that the owner has the desire to leave…oh no!

I have been fearing this as well and I never even got to order from them! :(

:( This would make me very sad. Gingko is a wonderful tea purveyor, very kind and offers some of the best teas I’ve tried.

My apologies guys! And thank you so much for thinking of us! The re-opening of our web store was delayed due to the chaos of my personal life (nothing bad though, just got too occupied by all kinds of things).

I will try to re-open the web store in a few days (or in several days…) I’m pondering on slowing down the store a little bit, but as long as I can manage it, I will keep it going. I figured that there aren’t many things that I’m capable of doing, so I really hesitate to give up this one ;-)

V-e-r-y happy to hear this! My best wishes as you find a way to keep the love of your life from becoming an albatross. Always a challenge!

Question, what do you mean by “slowing down”? meaning carry less teas or something like that? Anyways, I came across your store during the summer (which was closed then) and was (and still am) eagerly waiting the day it opens up again, they’re just so many teas you have that I really want to try. Best wishes!

Great news! Will be happy to have you back!
Even if you have to slow it down some.

Agreed! And I am ‘with’ anyone that is ‘slowing it down …’
