Tea Time in the Coronavirus Age: What Immune-Boosting Teas Should You Be Drinking?

Operating in a changing environment - Covid 19 

Posted April 2, 2020

The safety of our customers, our associates, and our families is our top priority.

Due to the uncertainty and unknowns in our environment, and following the directives of the State of Illinois, our shop in Yorktown Center has been closed since March 20th.  The April 30th proposed end of the "shelter-in-place" is the new date, although I don't know of anybody who truly believes that will be a reality.

But there is a silver lining at Windy City Tea!  Right before closing a took a large amount of tea out of the store (fully expecting a long shutdown) and am finally getting the online store put together!  We are targeting getting it done by Monday, April 6.  If there is something you would like to get, drop me an email at teamaster@windycitytea.com or check back for the online store next week.

If you had booked afternoon tea reservations, or a bridal or baby shower please contact us if you haven't heard from us already.  Even events through Mother's Day are subject to change!

We hope that we can continue to provide you the benefits that tea can give through these stressful times (after we figure out how, given the changing environment we are dealing with)

We appreciate your patience during this time and hope to see you soon!


Thursday, April 2  Windy City Tea in Yorktown Center will be closed until further notice.

A new online store is in the works (now that I have more time on my hands) and should be open soon to fulfill tea orders and delivered by USPS.

Please communicate through e-mail at teamaster@windycitytea.com, we will check at least once a day.  Thanks, be safe, wash your hands and drink tea six feet away from others!
