To our Loyal Customers at this challenging time Posted on 20 Mar 18:06

First, our thoughts and prayers are with each of you and your family members as we navigate these uncharted waters. Please be safe and stay calm.

Second, we’d like to update you on our temporary plans to manage this challenge.

  1. We will keep our retail store closed until such time as the Governor of California lifts the “lock down” order announced on 3/19.
  1. As a result, we will suspend our offerings of Tea Workshops and Tastings for now.
  1. We encourage all of you to place orders online at www.PointLomaTea.com, or via email at pointlomatea@gmail.com. Or, call 619-884-4370. We will endeavor to ship all orders within three days.
  1. We may experience a challenge in keeping our huge variety of teas in stock. Please bear with us if a tea you desire is not in stock for a brief period.

As many of you know and can appreciate, operating a small business is not easy under normal conditions. It takes hard work, some luck, a good team and great and loyal customers. We’ve been blessed with all of those, and I don’t take any of it for granted.

We are now in our 9th year in business at Liberty Station, and this will be our most difficult challenge. But we intend to persevere and come out stronger on the other side of this. With your help and encouragement, and your continued support, we plan to be here for many more years!

God bless,

Cheryl Graf, Owner

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

It must be the luck of the Irish, because all green teas are 10% off from March 1st through March 17th!

Facts about green tea:
* Can help reduce anxiety and help one's focus and attention (i.e., activation of working memory)
* May help promote oral hygiene by reducing inflammation and limiting the growth of certain bacteria associated with periodontal diseases.

The Point Loma Tea Scoop

We've had a lot of exciting things happen in the month of February so far! Here's just a snippet of what we've been up to:

February 12th: The Friends of NTC hosted a private party celebrating our brand new, renovated tea bar! We served iced Love Potion at the tea party (if you haven't tried this fabulous, fruity strawberry infusion, you must!)! It was such an honor to host our friends for the evening, thanks NTC!

 

High tea pastries!

 

Have you tried our chocolate teas?

 

Chocolate tea is a thing? Uh-huh, you betcha! More specifically, teas with cacao nibs! Cacao nibs are small pieces of crushed cocoa beans that add a chocolatey note to your tea without the guilt. The bioactive compounds found in cocoa have proven health benefits:
* Rich in flavan-3-ols, which provide nutrients and promote antioxidant activity
Rich in many minerals, including iron, magnesium, phosphorus, zinc, manganese, and copper
Has anti-inflammatory properties thanks to cocoa polyphenols

What a great excuse to indulge in a cup of our Chocolate Cupcake rooibos tea!
You can find cacao nibs (a.k.a. crushed cocoa beans) in these yummy teas: Berry Mocha Truffle, Bon Bon, Chocolate Cupcake, and Love Affair.
