The Chinese National Day is one of the longest holiday breaks of the year. Well deserved respite for the workers of China that lasts for one week. It's been an especially trying year in China with covid battles abound, so we're actually clocking out even earlier than expected.
That means that this is last weekend before the big break, so if you'd like to get an order on the road, now is the time! The earlier you order, the better the chances your tea will sneak through the customs queue, so best not wait until the last minute.
Orders made after Wednesday, September 28th will be shipped on October 8th.
See you after the Golden Week break!
