In recent days, we have installed a few major updates to features on Yunomi.life and Yunomi.us. The main goal was to improve and in some cases redefine the Yunomi customer experience.
The feature that we are most excited about is the transformation of the Yunomi shop into a socialized shopping experience. It has always been our goal to recreate the personal connection you get when buying from small businesses—hence our effort to partner with tea brands created by farms and small shops throughout Japan instead of simply creating our own tea brand.
Taking this further, we want to recreate the sense of community you get from shopping at a small local shop—being able to meet both the merchant as well as other shoppers, to ask other shoppers for their opinions on products, or advice on how to use products. Community.
The system is certainly incomplete, a vehicle that needs a lot of tuning, but it's a start. And on this journey toward a less solitary shopping experience, we hope for your cooperation and feedback.
