All the tea in China.....but it's stuck at the port!
The West Coast receives the majority of our tea shipments since vessels arrive at Long Beach, California before they come to the east coast. Since December, a massive strike/slow-down at the ports has resulted in significant delays in all of us receiving our tea shipments. We are, of course, not the only businesses affected. If you read about McDonald's in Japan running out of french fries, that was because of the same reason. Yesterday, we received an impressive visual describing the port congestion. If you have no idea how goods and serves come to us, the various stores and supermarkets - this will give you a better understanding.
