!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

We know we've probably said this a hundred times before, but we LOVE our customers!! And we also love learning about all the creative things that they do. 🙂For instance, we just learned that one of our neighbor Rachel Mercier curates a super cute online stationary shop called "Mercier Beaucoup". (What an absolute adorable name!) Rachel loves stationary so much that she has kept every single handwritten notes that she had ever received (including one from her fiance in 7th grade). Now that's what we call passion! And now, lucky for us, she is sharing her passion through her online store. Way to go, Rachel! 🙂
We had some cool customers in over the weekend, among them were Stephanie and Karl. Stephanie had hair to match our lights and chairs. It's not everyday that you see someone with pink hair (and pink hair that looks awesome at that) but Stephanie pulls it off. Different people blend in visually with different environments, Stephanie blends in here pretty well. One of the great things about being in New York, and particularly the East Village is being able to see every color and shape of person under the sun. It makes our day very enjoyable, and we like posting a few pics of our cool customers when we have time.
…quoted by our very own NYU librarian bubble tea drinker today. Thanks for stopping by, we'll see you real soon! 🙂
We had to compliment our customer Dave on his hilarious shirt. He said not many people have gotten the humor of it, but we beg to differ. Dave gets a large chai with tapioca. We say keep up the good work.
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.
