December 2021 COVID Update – Store hours, shopping options, and keeping you safe

Who knew we’d still be dealing with this almost 2 years later? Here’s the current info. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have questions, concerns, or special requests: (509) 315-4036 or info@tastesandtea.com.

Store hours are expanded through the holidays to include Sunday from 12-4. And we’re still open Monday – Saturday 11-6 and staying open until 8 on Thursdays.

Masks are required for everyone, regardless of vaccine status.

At this time, there is no additional capacity limit at the store. Full capacity for us is 20 people and that can be pretty cozy in our little store. If you are concerned, please consider our alternative shopping options

Alternative Shopping Options

As an alternative to coming in—or to reduce your exposure—we are offering the following options:

Online Shopping!

It’s up and running!! You can now shop for and order nearly all of our ‘core’ products—Teas, Spices, Oils, Vinegars—right here on our website.

A couple of caveats:

  • We’re not hooked up to our inventory yet so we don’t charge your credit card until we can actually pull the products for your order. If we are out of anything, we’ll contact you to determine what to do (cancel, backorder, change). We’ll also add any volume or shipping discounts. At no time will we ever make changes that would increase the charge to your card but there may be times when the charge will be less. Once we’ve pulled the products and finalized your package for shipping, you’ll get a notice of the actual charge.
  • Always feel free to call us with any questions or concerns about your order. Need something you don’t see available? Call us. Need recommendations for a tea or spice? Call us. Need something special put together? Call us.
  • You can order, then choose curbside pickup and we’ll get your order together and run it out to you when you come by. Please give us 24 hours for order fulfillment. Need it right away? Call us!

Private Shopping

Want to come in but need to limit your exposure to others? Give us a call and we will do our best to accommodate you with an appointment to come into the store outside of our normal hours so you can have the place to yourself and our undivided attention.

Keeping You Safe

We’ll continue disinfecting the door handles and counters after every customer. Masks are mandatory and we have disposable masks available for anyone who needs one. If you cannot wear a mask, please contact us at (509) 315-4036 or info@tastesandtea.com and we’ll happily serve you curbside or make other arrangements for you.

Unfortunately, tastings have been suspended for the time being.

Follow us on Facebook and/or sign up for our emails so we can keep you up to date with any changes, new products, and holiday specials.
