Our hearts are heavy with sadness and worry for the people Japan from the recent earthquake/tsunami rampage. Having met so many wonderful people on our tea buying trip last fall, it is especially upsetting to see the level of devastation. We’ve reached out to many of our friends and most (but not all) have let us know that they are ok.
If you follow us on Facebook, you already know our pledge to donate 20% of sales from our Japanese Green teas to the American Red Cross and searchdogfoundation.org. Given the magnitude of the crisis, we will increase our donation to 40% from now until May 11, 2011. We hope you will consider purchasing from us and we ask that you please pass this email on to others who may be interested in tea and in helping us help Japan.
Arigatou gozaimasu. (Thank you.)
