Shipment of premium tea delayed by typhoon

Well, we were about to post a message that Mr. Nagata had just shipped a special, limited amount of his most premium "tamaryokucha" green tea, but he sent word that he had to delay packaging because of a typhoon. Because of the heavy rainfall brought by the typhoon, the weather is too humid to remove the tea from the large dehumidifier/refrigerator in which he stores the processed tea until he gets an order. Exposing it to the humid air would change its taste, aroma, and color. So we'll have to wait a little longer until we can share this special batch of tea with you!
