Effective today, we are making some updates to our shipping policies. Due to increased shipping costs, we are raising the threshold for free tea shipping within the US to $50. The good news is that we are lowering the free US shipping threshold for teaware orders from $100 to $50. So simply put, all orders $50 and over now receive free US shipping.
You would benefit most from this new change if you occasionally want to add some tea sacs, tea tins, or other teaware to your order but don’t want to lay down $100 just to take advantage of free shipping. In fact, we will be expanding our tea selection over the coming weeks for a more well rounded offering. Feel free to reach out to us if you are looking for us to stock something.
If you buy 2oz – 1lb tea here and there, you’re going to see that shipping charge come into play. For those who typically order under $50, we recommend upping your tea order to take advantage of free shipping. Remember, properly stored tea can last up to a year. Another option is to buy some more variety of teas to expand your palate.
Stay tuned, because we are expanding our tea selections too. If you’ve ever visited our retail location, you might have noticed our offering is far greater than on our website. We will be expanding our tea selection online to more closely match our store offerings. Feel free to contact us if you are looking for recommendations on new teas to try.
For domestic orders under $50 we will defer to our discounted USPS priority mail shipping rates. All orders shipped outside the US will still be quoted USPS Priority Mail International.
