Corona Virus Update for the Whistling Kettle
FOR NOW - THE WHISTLING KETTLE WILL REMAIN OPEN FOR TAKE OUT ORDERS ONLY.
CERTAIN LOCATIONS MAY SEE OPEN HOURS ADJUSTED. PLEASE CHECK THE LOCATION PAGE FOR UP TO DATE HOURS.
COMING SOON - DELIVERY OPTIONS
We will have a limited staff available for take out and retail bulk tea. We are seeing a sharp increase in tea sales, but are well supplied. We will continue to sanitize all contact services on a regular basis. We'll bring any food, beverages or even bulk tea outside. Just give the local restaurant a call. We'll reach out with additional news as it becomes available.
1 - We process our teas in heat sealed bags well in advance. This limits handling and exposure to air.
2 - We sanitize our work areas daily. All staff wear masks and gloves during processing of new inventory.
3 - Our suppliers have been in touch and informed us of their internal safety protocols. Processing tea involves dry heat over 200 degrees. Viruses cannot survive high temperature or products dried below 5% moisture.
4 - We are seeing exploding demand for certain teas. If we run out, please sign up for e-mail notification. Our vendors are well stocked with ingredients and we have more on the way.
