Google Offers Rocks!


!Google contacted us recently to help us get a new flood of tea loving customers so we can meet them by participating in their new Google Offers program. It’s amazing with smart phones and the internet how quickly everyone can now find new stores that align with their interests such as us. We got to run our store promotion on their site for an entire day! Elie saw our google offer and snagged up an offer code to come check out our store with his tea loving wife Melissa. They picked up some matcha powder and some bubble teas and are now our happy customers. It’s definitely no surprise to us that the more often we meet tea lovers, that many of them are often into health be it raw food, gyrotonics, yoga, or more broadly just exercise and healthy eating. Melissa herself has a yoga business which you can check out @ http:www.Smarterbodies.com

Her and her husband are pictured here. Have a great day everyone, thanks for reading. 🙂

We’re 2 :)


We turn 2 years old this month. Thanks to all of our East Village regulars, and our Brooklyn regulars, and our, wait a minute, we even have some regulars that live in L.A and London. Thanks to everyone for supporting us and making our store a very fun place to be all of the time. We enjoy serving you drinks and selling you awesome teas. See you soon


A sweet story


Last year at this time our long time bubble tea loving customer Chris proposed to his girlfriend Kristi via our storefront window, she said yes and now they're happily married. In the meantime they moved to Colorado, but came back to pay us a visit. Chris had us put up another message, this time for their 1 year anniversary. We'll never forget her face when she saw the window the first time. He distracted her as they were walking in, and then walked her out, and turned directly to the front of the store where the message was. Tears were shed, and yeses were said. It's moments like that, which make it amazing to run a small business and have great regulars whose lives you can participate in. By the way Chris likes Mixed Berry fruit bubble tea, and Kristi likes Passion Orange Guava.

Enjoy this great song by Koop. Nice wacky video too, in no way meant to resemble the aforementioned couple although the song itself is about love and is beautiful.

Happy Earth Day!


Happy Earth Day Everyone! Be a leader and pick up an extra minute to pick up a piece of litter off the street and take it to the trash. Shoot it in like a 3 pointer, and if you take a few tries to get it in, we won't tell anyone. We're not great at trash basket ball either, so don't worry. You get points for being a good person. As the weather gets nicer in NYC, let's take a moment to enjoy living on this beautiful planet. Have a great day.


兔年快樂! 恭喜發財 to everyone!


Today is Chinese New Year, we wish everyone great health, wealth & prosperity in the Year of the Golden Rabbit! Cheers! 🙂

祝大家新年快樂! 萬事如意! 身體健康! 心想事成! 大展鴻兔! 兔飞猛进! ^-^

"…..Not many people know that the Rabbit is the symbol of the Moon…..

The Moon is YIN and this is the Yin of Heaven, signifying magic.  Thus on each of the Full Moon nights of this year, go out into your garden to gaze into the Full Moon and visualize plenty of Moon dust and Moon glow flowing into you, filling your whole body with bright white light and granting you fearlessness, love and courage.  This will not only strengthen your inner "Chi" energy, it will also bring wisdom into your life."

10th Street Block Party!

Today we were thrilled to attend our very first 10th Street Block Party! We ate some yummy kabobs, and met some really nice vendors including Weebeetees, Cheetahrama, and Geas Garden Jewelry. We also set up a small table outside for customers to try some of our special flavor iced tea. There were Blood Orange Hibiscus, Pineapple Green Tea, and Chocolate Mint Rooibos. What a lovely day to be working outdoors! 🙂
