I'm intrigued too (as I always am)
. As far as I know, O-cha and Hibiki takes orders and ships every day of the year...so either their staff don't have GW, or Kevin and Mr. Yasui puts on super 1 man operations during GW?
, I don't know. (Once I ordered from Hibiki on new year's eve not expecting it to be even noticed anytime soon. It was shipped promptly on New years day in less than 24 hours
...but I digress this is not a hibiki thread.)
I assumed since there was no notice, Ippodo must just be operating as usual, and placed my order not knowing it won't be shipped until almost a week later (gyo n matcha withdrawl
). So in my post above, I was meaning more that it would nice if Ippodo had put up something of a notice like the one from Zencha in rdl's post above.
